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.
Brought this book for my husband and for my sister. They both really liked it. I liked how it was different people writing on subjects they knew and different artists and graphic designers illustrated the ideas.
Bought this for my 11 year old nephew for Christmas. He LOVED it and was totally absorbed, read it cover to cover and told us stuff back. Great illustrations and another wonderful way to bring science to life.
I have really enjoyed scanning through this book:) I am a scientist and I love how it can merge with beautiful art. It was for my personal collection but it'd also be a great gift for a teenage with enthusiasm in science I think. Highly recommend it! Dee
Beautiful illustrations and nicely written articles. Though you can tell that some scientists are better at explaining difficult concepts than others :-) Great book to have on the coffee table, always sparks conversation.
What you will find if you buy this book is the following: short texts about different scientific themes (not very scientific texts though.. more short opinions) and an illustration that kinda corresponds to it, but doesnt help its explanation. What I expexted was a visualisation of the scientific topic or phenomenon with the illustration and some science based informational texts. Thats not what this is sadly. The book is not all bad though. The texts are nicely written and the illustrations are beautiful.
