Well produced, but with a terrible error,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sciencia: Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Astronomy for All (Wooden Books) (Hardcover)
I hope to get my daughter to read a few pages of this wonderfuly produced book when they are relevant to her homework.
But: They have the equation for graivty WRONG! On page 88 some clueless typesetter has placed the squared symbol at the bottom of "distance", so it looks like d2 rather than d-squared!
I hope I don't find other errors, or accept them in subjects I don't know about...

I think there is a reference in the book to iridology as if it is a science rather than a way of extracting money from the gullible. If you could get rid of that too it would begood. Or was that Quadrivium? Anyway please don't promote iridology!

Does this mean that I should wait for a new revised edition? or I can just order the book straight away(without errors.)?
