    A daughter of a friend of mine has an interest in science and I was trying to find something that would be accessible and easy to understand she is 14 but would still be engaging and easy to follow So I read this can t recommend a book I haven t read and think this will fit her perfectly It was exactly what I was looking for.

    Gribben has long been one of my favorite science writers He has a way of presenting science that feels like a mixture of a series of really good lectures and an invitation to the Q A afterward In this book he covers it all chemistry, biology, physics both particle and astro If a well written update on the state of science at the beginning of the 21st century sounds intriguing, grab this one It s a keeper Gribben has long been one of my favorite science writers He has a way of presenting science that feels like a mixture of a series of really good lectures and an invitation to the QA afterward In this book he covers it all chemistry, biology, physics both particle and astro If a well written update on the state of science at the beginning of the 21st century sounds intriguing, grab this one It s a keeper

    Very short and therefore not very deep.

    The book gives a historical and conceptual scaffolding to basic physics and chemistry, with a touch of biology no geology though The stage for this organization is the scientific method and the idea that if a scientific model doesn t match experiment, then it is wrong.This book was a lot shorter than I expected I was also very dense, meaning that the information was packed in without any wasteful repetition It often uses technical words with nothingthat a quick contextual definition The book gives a historical and conceptual scaffolding to basic physics and chemistry, with a touch of biology no geology though The stage for this organization is the scientific method and the idea that if a scientific model doesn t match experiment, then it is wrong.This book was a lot shorter than I expected I was also very dense, meaning that the information was packed in without any wasteful repetition It often uses technical words with nothingthat a quick contextual definition Because of that, if you listen to the audiobook as I did , unless you already have a pretty good handle on science, you might need to listen to it a few times.Recommended to Almost Everyone who really wants to know and understand science, the casual reader with only a passing interest in science might do better to try A Short History of Nearly Everything For those who already know a log about science, it s a great way to review, and pick up a few interesting tidbits as well

    the Best

    If the data does not match the model, the model is wrong.

    I admit I had great time reading this book although I faced some difficulties with some scientific concepts, but that s on me Science in general is tough and still hard subject to learn So after many research in Goodreads, I thought this was the right book to start with before reading any science book in the near future.Starting on the way John Gribbin writes, I found it not that bad He didn t express his own personal views He eloquently explained the facts scientifically In general, I only I admit I had great time reading this book although I faced some difficulties with some scientific concepts, but that s on me Science in general is tough and still hard subject to learn So after many research in Goodreads, I thought this was the right book to start with before reading any science book in the near future.Starting on the way John Gribbin writes, I found it not that bad He didn t express his own personal views He eloquently explained the facts scientifically In general, I only couldn t follow with his explanations in just two chapters The rest of the chapters were fine.The book is really a journey It takes you from the very tiny small particles of the atoms and then up and up to the stars Finally there, the big bang and the ultimate expanding universe, or should I say the indefinite small Gribbin explained most of the chemistry, physics, geology, cosmology and some biology stuff I am so happy that I learned something about the quarks, the geological time scale and evolution.It s worth mentioning the two downsides that took away the two stars I think these two shouldn t be in any science book First, the book isn t illustrated and doesn t contain any figures Second and lastly, the whole book was published in 1998, meaning it isn t updated Perhaps there is now a lotto the science than in 1998.Thank you John Gribbin I am looking forward to reading your other books

    Lo he le do en castellano.La organizaci n del libro es amena e interesante porque en lugar de empezar por el principio del Universo o por las estructuras m s grandes, empieza por las estructuras m s peque as y hace el camino en el orden inverso a lo que es habitual en estos libros Adem s, se agradece que introduzca conceptos de otras disciplinas que no sean la astronom a qu mica, biolog a, geolog a, etc mostrando la gran relaci n que existe entre todos estos campos.Como aspectos negativos, m Lo he le do en castellano.La organizaci n del libro es amena e interesante porque en lugar de empezar por el principio del Universo o por las estructuras m s grandes, empieza por las estructuras m s peque as y hace el camino en el orden inverso a lo que es habitual en estos libros Adem s, se agradece que introduzca conceptos de otras disciplinas que no sean la astronom a qu mica, biolog a, geolog a, etc mostrando la gran relaci n que existe entre todos estos campos.Como aspectos negativos, mencionar que a veces las descripciones se hacen densas y dif ciles de seguir Adem s, otras veces se utiliza el recurso de personalizar las reglas de la f sica antes de que el universo se d cuenta y dicho paquete tenga que desaparecer.Lo recomiendo al que le guste la divulgaci n cient fica porque a pesar de explicar temas que ya est n contados en muchos otros sitios, lo hace de una manera amena y resaltando relaciones que en otros libros no mencionan

    The book brought back some memories of my high school science classes There were some fundamental things I had forgotten in physics and chemistry and this book reminded me of those Other than that, Gribbins has tried hard, yet failed mildly though, to write a book that could explain science to laymen Maybe, that s why the book is called, Almost Everyone s Guide to Science Having said, it s a really good attempt because I wouldn t be able to dream up of a way to explain quantum physics, The book brought back some memories of my high school science classes There were some fundamental things I had forgotten in physics and chemistry and this book reminded me of those Other than that, Gribbins has tried hard, yet failed mildly though, to write a book that could explain science to laymen Maybe, that s why the book is called, Almost Everyone s Guide to Science Having said, it s a really good attempt because I wouldn t be able to dream up of a way to explain quantum physics, molecular structure and reactions and the composition of amino acids and DNA molecules in really simple terms Some things, just require a little acumen for true understanding, I guess

    For some reason, maybe sheer curiosity or perhaps a yearning to return to middle school science class no, that s not it, it has to be the first one , I picked up this book Gribbin tells the story of science from the inside of the atom to the farthest expanses of the universe It is a nice, educational read for the person who has forgotten the science they learned in school and simply wants to remember some of it Maybe this sounds a bit juvenile, but the only thing I would add would be some di For some reason, maybe sheer curiosity or perhaps a yearning to return to middle school science class no, that s not it, it has to be the first one , I picked up this book Gribbin tells the story of science from the inside of the atom to the farthest expanses of the universe It is a nice, educational read for the person who has forgotten the science they learned in school and simply wants to remember some of it Maybe this sounds a bit juvenile, but the only thing I would add would be some diagrams charts pictures which would enhance an already good book
