Beautiful book! But - can my 15 year old son trust the content though? Copernicus may have studied in Italy, does it mean he was Italian?

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good books for explaining complex ideas
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 29 January 2021
With a strong Physics and Engineering background everything gets REALLY complex and mathematical very quickly when trying to explain some of the concepts. What this style of books does is remind you of some of the basic principles without maths, allowing me to talk to my kids about the things in science that I'm passionate about.

Some of the topics are a little skimmed over, but to be fair they still explain the importance of the ideas. We have the Physics, Technology, and Maths books. All a great style, easily accessible and my 11YO daughter can happily browse without help as the writing style is perfect for her Harry Potter level lexicon.

Across the 3 books we have, some highlights:

Maths: Fourier analysis (weak explanation but conveys the message well), Group theory and the rubix cube, number theory and development.

Technology: Central Heating systems, Helicopters, Lasers, The Internet, Locks, hydraulics

Physics: Quantum field theory (written SO well), nuclear power and bombs, Relatviity

As I said, some incredibly important topics that permeate or lives but kids never get access too until they're grown ups. These books help provide the context for amazing scientific and mathematical discoveries. Stay with me here, but I believe that scientific fields have now advanced so far into areas completely inaccessible to the lay person that a sense of distrust and knowledge elitism has overwhelmed the amazing work our human society is doing. So what these books do amazingly well is help to bridge this gap, and help any reader to feel like the topics are more inclusive to them. And this is what great writing and education is all about. (Sorry, rant over).
