Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Another weapon in the fight against scientific illiteracy, this book is a collection of short essays on scientific topics. Some are simply cute little facts with no real connection to the passages around them. Others are actually parts of a more lengthy sequence that attempts to adumbrate the state of the art in some discipline. The educated scientist will enjoy dipping into the book for amusement or to update his or her knowledge. The scientifically illiterate may benefit from the ease of the presentation and find that science can be more interesting than it was in those old high school courses. It should be noted that (1) much of the material is similar to that in Robert Hazen and Trefil's Science Matters ( LJ 1/1/91), and (2) ``science'' to Trefil means physical science, astronomy, biology, and geology. See also Richard Brennan's Dictionary of Scientific Literacy , reviewed in this issue, p. 132.--Ed.-- Harold D. Shane, Baruch Coll., CUNY
A crash course for a general audience, comprising literally 1,001 concise explanations of scientific phenomena in seven topical categories: classical biology, evolution, molecular biology, classical physical science, modern physical science, earth science, and astronomy. Includes 100 drawings and photos. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (

    This is a good book for teens in grades 6 through 11 because it tells a lot about the different sciences also it’s a good book just for fun reading

    Description and summary of main points
    In the different grades by explaining what happens different things like how wings evolve to how computer viruses develop

    I like this book because it’s good for all ages to read because it’s simple to understand I recommend this book for those who like and want to learn about science

    I like this book because im a really big science nerd but it wasn’t always like that but after I read this book I know a lot about electronics and mother nature.
