5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun with Experiments for all ages., 23 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Ultimate Book of Saturday Science: The Very Best Backyard Science Experiments You Can Do Yourself (Paperback)
I love this book, it takes me right back to my childhood and those days when children were encouraged to think for themselves and allowed to experiment, before the days of nanny state and Health&Safety gone mad. I bought it to teach my grandchildren fun science and was surprised at how good it is. It is full of great experiments and should delight any parent wanting to enjoy science with their children. It has some easy and some fairly dangerous experiments (how about building a Thermic Lance) but nothing an adult with common sense could not handle. There is a great range covering most aspects of modern science , the experiments are well explained and if you choose to delve into the science in depth it is well covered and pretty detailed. Although written for an Americans it works for UK audiences, one warning though, some of the mortar experiments might draw the attention of Big Brother curious to know if you plan an attack on the state :-).

Very highly recommended for adults of all ages.
