During the last few decades science and mathematics has developed so rapidly that it is difficult to comprehend the amount of effort that has gone through civilizations to reach at this point. There are many books that one can read about the history of science. Unfortunately, they all give a very descriptive report of how discoveries were made and invetions came through, leaving the reader unaware about the impact of other scientific discoveries during that period or in near past and future. This leads to understanding of the subject in a very closed manner. The Science Book addresses this problem besides informing the reader about what was the common understanding about the subject and how the discovery or invention came about.

The book is designed and written to make it appropriate for coffee/side tables. The content is concise, precise and well homogenized when it comes to information related to science of 'those days'. One thing that this book does very well is leave the reader excited about what happened next or are their any more 'stories' related to the topic - which is what the scientific quest is all about. Eventually reader will spend a lot of time on the internet exploring all the details pertaining to inventions/discoveries that are mentioned in the book.

It is a must have for all students of science. The book provides an insight about scientific developments over ages that will encourage the reader to explore the subject of their interest further. Language of the book is very simple and uncomplicated, making it readable for all age groups - even for bedtime stories.

"The Science Book" is a fantastic book that offers a small tastes of information on a large number of topics. Most of what is discussed in this book has to do with science and math. Each page has a short synopsis of the information needed to understand these different things, with a relevant picture on the following page. I highly recommend this to anyone with an interest in learning a little about a lot of things. This book also makes a good "coffee table" book.

This is a pretty interesting book about science. Unfortunately it doesn't go too far into anything. It more tells about things than really explaining them. It's like reading a detailed table of contents of a science book. It can give the reader exposure to many things which the reader might like to study further in other media. Not bad for a light book.

This book is an excellent way to pass a few minutes and learn something in the process. You might find something in here that you would like to research more. Nothing in this book is exhaustive, but it is a great overview of many things in Science. Leave it in an open place where others can see it, maybe they'll find something in it that interests them!

As the late Carl Sagan said, "We live in a world exquisitely dependent upon science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology." Nothing in this book will make an expert out of a non-scientist, but the overall effect will be to increase one's awareness of and appreciation for the world of science. The need for such a book has never been greater.

I first came across this little gem in, of all places, the barber shop! (They cut the hair on some very smart heads over there.) And that's a pretty good indication of how you'll use this book. It's perfect for short intervals of reading. Each page is a self-contained essay on some scientific subject, arranged chronologically. Although the contributors are some of the leading lights in their fields, the writing style is extremely accessible to the layman. The foreword introduced me t Simon Singh, of whose work I am now officially a fan, especially of his new book, "Trick or Treatment," for a thorough expose of quack medicine. The overall effect is to increase the reader's understanding of how a scientific topic fits into the march of time. And the book is so well-written and nicely illustrated, you don't even feel like you're learning!

This is quite possibly the perfect bathroom book. Come on, people: you know you're much too smart for those "Uncle John" things!

In my case he is priching to the choir, but I got some friends and family having short profound moments while waiting for me to get ready.
That's the way scientists should to comunicate with the pulblic.

Thank you. Great.
The used book arrived as promised and in excellent, almost new condition from a seller other than Amazon. The book was a gift for our granddaughter who at age 15 was showing an interest in the sciences but wanted to understand more. This book was a great introduction to the breadth of sciences out there as well as the content of the different disicplines of science. She is now an Biologial Systems Engineering major in college, and she personnally credits the book for expanding her knowledge of science as well as her enthusiasum for the subject. This book is recommended for any middle-school to high school age student to learn what science is and how exciting it can be. As adult, I read it too and learn a lot from the book as well. A very easy read.
