This is a very easy read - good science presented with sufficient detail but not the sort of depth that will make your eyes glaze over.
It would be five starts but sadly, the book is American and all the temperatures in it are in Farenheit. While reading, I had a constant urge to be crossing out the degrees F numbers and replacing with degrees C. Every professional scientist across the pond has got in the habit of writing in SI units so it makes this author look either amateur or very, very old.
It's a bit of a shame, but worth buying nonetheless.
