i think this book is excellent! 10/10! Would highly recommend it, lots of detailed pictures, and nicely presented information. Although i have rated it 5 stars, I would have thought that there would have been some more experiments and demonstrations i there, but overall it is a great buy! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Steve Spangler's repeats 7 Nov 2011
By Matt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I gave the Spangler books 5 stars, because individually they deserve it. However, just buy his latest book, because the experiments are mostly repeats of his last book with a couple of new ones thrown in. I bought all three at the same time and I was very disappointed, because they were practically reprints of one another.

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading title 3 Sep 2012
By JJ - Published on Amazon.com
I received this book as a gift to involve my children more in science. I was excited about conducting some fun 'wow' experiments and to the books credit there are some interesting experiments that can be conducted. I'm giving the book a single star because the title is misleading. To conclude summer vacation I decided I'd conduct the "fire bubble" or "exploding toothpaste" experiment which my kids had been asking to see. When I turned to that portion of the book I was disappointed to read these experiments are for 'teachers-only', certified, hands-on professionals, with access to materials an average person would not have on hand or easy access to. I would not be able to perform these experiments.

Why would the title of a book being sold to the general public suggest that there are experiments to be performed involving 'fire bubbles' and 'exploding toothpaste' when the reality is that they are only to be performed in a science lab by a certified professional?

If you are buying the book thinking you will be able to perform those two experiments for someone, think again, unless you're an active science teacher.

4.0 out of 5 stars Consider purchasing Naked Eggs before this book... 28 Dec 2012
By Amber Warfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My son, age 10, and I are both big Steve Spangler fans. Last year I had purchased him the Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes book. There were many experiments in that book that we were both able to do and he has really enjoyed that book immensely.

This book we both also enjoy but the experiments are much more complicated and of a more professional level. I haven't read through this book as much as my son has yet but he kept commenting to me that in order to do this experiment or that experiment we would have to go on stevespangler.com to get an ingredient. I can tell he likes the book but the idea that we will have to purchase special ingredients is a bit of a turn off to us both.

So if you haven't purchased Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes I highly recommend you go with that book first to start with. If you are a die hard science experiment lover then by all means go for this book. It won't disappoint!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of 2 of the greatest classroom science books, EVER! 18 Oct 2011
By Ellen Peterson - Published on Amazon.com
The very best thing about this book (and it's companion first volume, I might add) besides the copious amounts of AMAZING pictures, is the real-world application section that is included in many of the demonstrations! It ties in beautifully with the "Beyond the Fizz" ending about making sure there's more than gee whiz in your science demonstration.

I couldn't ask for a more engaging format. My students will be lining up to borrow this book as soon as it hits my classroom tomorrow. They won't be able to resist the beautiful pictures and the simple directions that will allow them to recreate some of these exciting moments at home. The best part is when I hear, "I'm going to show this to my little brother/sister!" I know when they say that, what they really mean is they intend to show off what they've learned by teaching it to someone else. These moments reach the dinner table.Fire Bubbles and Exploding Toothpaste: More Unforgettable Experiments that Make Science Fun

5.0 out of 5 stars Spangler Makes Science Fun 31 Oct 2011
By Sharon the Brat - Published on Amazon.com
If I thought Steve Spangler hit a home run with "Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes," then I must say this work is a Grand Slam! It is a marvelous companion volume to his other book, but it is also a wonderful edition on its own. The text is easy to understand, and children can follow the directions with minimal supervision. It gives them a great sense of accomplishment to be able to say they did it themselves. The pictures are vivid and entertaining, and the actual experiments are lots of fun in addition to being invaluable teaching moments. I have this paperbound tome, and I am eagerly anticipating the iTunes version as well. I would highly recommend this book to teachers, parents, those interested in easy science demonstrations, and the fine folks who are still children at heart - it's fun for everyone!
