To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
a brilliant idea, well realized, a rich object, which justify the life of real book, you need to keep it with your hands! compliments to the authors, the scientist, and the artist for the great team job.
I love the fact that it combines the (seemingly) polar opposites of art and physics into one book. Finally! It's a really good book to either read from start to finish, or just simply flick through and read up on one or two things- enjoying the variety of artwork along with it.
A lot of fun, terrific illustrations. Nice hardbound book that I hope will be in our family for a long time. If you'd like to see some more examples of the illustrations (all of which are full-page, color), I recommend checking out the review at the blog "Book by it's Cover".
This book's explanations of natural phenomena--ranging from the cosmic to the microscopic--offer a unique exploration of the world around/within us. Those presented by scientists are articulate, accessible, and at times even funny. They are rooted in observation and focused research. The interpretations shared by artists are likewise based on dedicated study, but their artistic freedom allows them to present their subjects in rich, personal, and often beautiful ways.
Overall a beautiful book (inside and out--the cover and binding are very high quality). A great gift.
