Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 12 Up Loaded with technical jargon and details, The New Eyes of the Scientist is an overwhelming introduction to the new technology and apparatus that scientists are developing and using to probe space, the microscopic world, and the human body. It is thoroughly up-to-date, including projects under development and making note of the slowing of the space program since the shuttle disaster. Metos presents the material in a pedantic manner accessible only to those who already have an extensive background in the subject. Even reading with a dictionary will not suffice, as many terms are too specialized to be included in a standard one. The use of acronyms for the different apparatus makes for slow reading, as does the dry, detailed scientific style and lack of a glossary. Schematic drawings and photographs illuminate the text at intervals, but their specialized information limits understanding and usefulness. Metos appears to have a firm grasp of the subjects he is writing about, but is unable to present the material to the average person. Definitely not as easy to read or understand as other titles in this series, this book is only for those who have an extensive background in the sciences. Others should wait for a more simplified explanation. Kathryn Havris, Mesa Public Library, Ariz.
