Book News
This book presents a comprehensive overview of important scientific concepts and theories in small, digestible chunks. Written for a general audience, it aims to serve both as a reference and as a work of popular science. It covers basic, up-to-date concepts in physics, chemistry, biology, earth science, space, medicine, social science, computing, and applied science and includes a chapter called "future" which is speculative and reads a bit like science fiction. Individual entries describe a scientific concept in one to three paragraphs; many are illustrated with black and white diagrams. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (

Absolutely everything that matters in science in 1001 bite sized explanations. Exhausting! Too little about too much.

Excellent for all ages. Not detailed but sufficient. Simple on the basics of science. Finally I can understand time warping, quantum theory....
