This is a superb book by Adam Hart Davis. The illustrations are very apposite to the text and the whole book is extremely readable - I read it from cover to cover. It'll stay handy for some time - as it is also good for dipping into - before it goes on to the shelf.

, The book presents many interesting and fun facts, presented in
an intersting manner. It is logically organized. Not much depth, however. It provides a springboard for further reading
and research.

This book accompanies Dr Hart-Davis' TV programme of the same title. Very interesting and informative. Gives a good introduction to various topics including medicine, politics and the Church. A good read.

It appears to be an unbiased review with a good balance of fact and less impression. The book included an easy to read Timeline along with a complete Bibliography.
