Format: Paperback
Very, Very basic account of physics and chemistry. Which is not bad for kids or those completely unfamiliar with physics. But, and this is a big "but", the illustrations require a magnifying glass. There is no point in illustrating the the Periodic table if we cannot read it. The explantion of Quarks, Leptons, etc is fine. Simple, but fine for newcomers. The illustrations were created by someone with a severe eyesight problem. And because illustrations illuminate a text, this is a problem the author should address.

Format: Hardcover
please dont laugh..I have yet to read this book, but after seeing a discovery channel documentary created around this book, I found myself, at age 39, being utterly fascinated , amazed, and interested in chemistry...something I had never felt before!...Enough so , that I ran to my computer immediately afterward to look for it. I am an artist, and a nightclub dj, quite permanently not interested in any of these things!...I learned more in 40 minutes than in my entire (almost) 40 years. I know its silly to discuss a book I have yet to read, but I am excited about the prospect of doing so, excited about having some more of the dots connected in my understanding of the universe....just for the record, I have been using a computer for three or four years, mostly for my music,...this is the first time I have ever hunted for a book on line, and certainly the first time I have ever wanted to read about chemistry!
