I do not know enough about the science to approve or criticise its presentation but I did feel that things were rather skimmed over. I found myself wanting more explanation of the why and how of things. This was disappointingly shallow. I feel I learned more from the DVDs of Prof. Cox than from this, where usually one would expect a book (even just one chapter of it) to be more in depth.
Overall, I would hope that non-tie in books would be more in depth, but if this is supposed to be a loss leader to tempt me to purchase the rest of this particular book, it did not work.
For its length and lack of depth I feel it is rather overpriced at 99p, frankly.
Not even worth the sub £1 price.
The book was a triumph of style over content. Many of the pages were full of a handful of words in a huge font. Eye-catching but little else.
This wouldn't have been such an issue if the content wasn't so pedestrian. I felt that it was aimed at an intelligent ten year old and I finished the book without any sense of awe and having learned little that I didn't already know.
