3.0 out of 5 stars Well produced, but with a terrible error, 1 July 2012
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!

A total of five errors were found in the first edition which was published in the UK and US - all have now been corrected.

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