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.
Children's Literature - Mary Ashcliffe and Thad Ashcliffe
This book is well written, information dense and enthralling for the student reader. The layout is clean and focused. There are excellent graphs and charts throughout the book. The use of computer graphics for illustrations in this book works well for some things and for other things, it gets in the way. Strong uses of computer- generated illustrations show three-dimensional concepts, lists and/or sequences of things. The computer-generated graphics excel at showing concepts as with the superb overview of plate tectonics and the structure of the Earth. For the most part where a few actual photographs are used, the pictures are, although excellent in quality and right on topic, small. Showing people via actual photographs is much more effective than a computer-generated graphic, e.g., there are excellent "after" pictures of San Francisco and Kobe. Occasionally, the computer graphics get in the way as with the illustration of geysers. The information content, however, more than makes up for this slight defect. This book, in addition to interesting the young reader, can serve as an adjunct text for the science teacher. Reviewer: Mary Ashcliffe and Thad Ashcliffe

    Worth the purchase.

    As a teacher, I find it very informative; and the illustrations are definitely helpful and well done. This book is actually valuable to all ages.

    My son loves it

    I have an 8 year old science nut who can't get enough of this kind of book. Our whole family enjoyed this book. The pictures are really cool for non-readers or beginning readers or visual learners. Whenever we have this book or any of the Insider series books out people ask to see them. It has really instilled a curiosity for science in all of us.
