The most consise, informative and wide ranging book on the sciences you can buy. Each page contains around 3 paragraphs on either fundemental mathematics, Physic's/Chemestry/Biology and Astromony. Covering the very basics through to the most difficult to grasp ideas and theorys, all explained on a single page. Every description is illustrated with beautifully detailed whimsical images.
Above all else to tone of the book is perfect, Kids would love it as it's easy enough to understand, but adults will find the level of depth presise definitions a joy as well. I own a couple of other mini guides from the publisher and the standard of production is excellent throughout, even the inlay pagea are beautifully designed. I'm really quite passionate about this book because it really deserves to be recognised as a true benchmark in scientiffic understanding made accessible. it's the best book of it's type around, one to treasure for a long time.
