Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up—Each of these attractive, reference-style introductions begins with an overview and then looks more closely at the various facets of the subject, including controversial issues such as stem-cell research. The chapters are discrete, allowing researchers to focus only on what they need. Groundbreaking discoveries and major scientists are introduced as the evolution of scientific thinking is explained. Descriptions of scientific processes are accompanied by labeled and numbered diagrams. These, along with color photos, highlighted inset pieces offering examples, further detail, and thought provoking "Try This" activities extend the content. Unfortunately, the glossaries that conclude each chapter and the indexes lack detail, there are minor typos, and the books have occasional British usages. Additional.
