5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating dip-in science book, 10 May 2013
This review is from: The Science Magpie: A hoard of fascinating facts, stories, poems, diagrams and jokes, plucked from science and its history (Icon Magpie) (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I always enjoy a good 'toilet book'. One that you can have by the loo and dip in and out of as your having a wee rest.

This one is slightly different than the others in that it has science as its main theme. As such, the book contains information, curiosities, stories and facts all about science and the history of it.

Although I have a fascination for science and historical curiosities, I won't say that I'm an expert by any means. Having said that, this book was written in a way to make the subject interesting and understandable without dumbing it down.

Each section/story lasts no more than 2 pages which makes it ideal for dipping in and out of. It is, however, one of those books when you just want to keep reading another story, then another. This is also one of those books that, should anyone be sitting near you as you read, will find themselves regaled with stories and facts that are just too fascinating to keep to yourself.

At times this book is intriguing, at times funny - but is always fascinating. If you have an interest in science, or just like little facts and snippets of knowledge, I would recommend this lovely little book to you.
