Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Originally published in Britain in 1999, this inexpensive, one-volume paperback reference is not so much an encyclopedia, as the title suggests, as a dictionary with over 6500 very brief, alphabetically arranged entries. It is obviously not a replacement for a major source like the multivolume McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science & Technology (LJ 9/1/97). Nor would it be used instead of the McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms (1994), for instance, to look up a quick definition. While the material is sound and would benefit high school students or general readers needing brief definitions of scientific terms or short biographies of famous scientists, it seems more appropriate for a home library than a public or academic library.--Paul Haschak, Southeastern Louisiana Univ., Hammond Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
Booknews
A first-stop reference for high school and college students not majoring in science. Over 6,500 alphabetical entries cover earth and life science, physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, information technology, and other areas. They are supported by some 250 diagrams and drawings and extensive cross-referencing. Missing are pronunciation guides, the origins of the words, and prefixes and suffixes used in scientific terminology. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
