Pub. Date:
This wide-ranging National Geographic book is a delight for science buffs, math whizzes, technology geeks, computer nerds, physics students, and the casual reader alike. Capturing centuries of scientific thought, natural phenomena, revolutionary inventions, and the most up-to-date investigations, this richly illustrated volume contains 2,000 vivid illustrations—including 3-D graphics and pictograms—to make the information even more accessible and amazing to discover. The Science Book offers both a general overview of topics for the browsing reader and more specific information for those seeking deeper insight into a particular subject. Six major sections, ranging from the universe and planet Earth to biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics, encompass everything from microscopic life to nuclear power—with particular attention given to subjects in the news today, like climate change and genetic engineering. The innovative organization allows for quick reference, while numerous fact boxes and cross-references emphasize the many links among modern scientific fields. Visual elements make even the most involved discussions easy to understand. The successes of National Geographic’s Visual History of the World and The Knowledge Book underscore the market for accessible resources such as this. Attractively priced for gift-giving and loaded with essential information, The Science Book will shine as an indispensable family reference.
