Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Double-page spreads and eye-catching, state-of-the-art illustrations that seem to jump out at you are just some of the alluring features of Simon & Schuster's Insiders series. The three-dimensional quality of the interior is prefigured by each book's vivid embossed, metallic cover. But this book isn't just glitz and pictures: it covers the subject in detail. Appealing graphics; memorable factoids.
