" Interesanta si cu multe poze si explicatii, foarte buna pentru copii si "neinitiati". " said.

"Although this book is clearly aimed at scientifically curious kids and teens, I found the book thoroughly enlightening as an adult.

Even after having read "The Science Book", "The Knowledge Book" and "The Answer Book" by National Geographic, I must say this Doring Kindersley book explained a lot of scientific principles much better and more vividly. It was with this book that I finally felt like I understood how electricity works, how rainbows are formed, various aspects of electromagnetism and much more. Whereas the writing and presentation style in NG books is helpful and mostly sufficient but sometimes on the dry side, the writing and presentation in DK books is simply superb and this book is another example of this.

Adding to the value are the various simple scientific experiments you can perform either by following along in your mind or doing them with your kids (if you have any). The experiments are there to illustrate the principles, however by "simple" I don't mean boring. There are almost none of your standard "watch water boil and turn into steam" kind of ho-hum "experiments". Instead, I found many of them surprising and intriguing, even though I've been curious about science for years. For younger kids, many of them might even seem like magic, but for older kids though, the experiments should really get them intrigued about science. Either way, hopefully I'll be able to try them out in the future.

If you have kids who are curious about popular science, this book is a must buy. If however you are an adult with a similar interest, don't overlook this book as "just for kids". With excellent explanations, superb graphics and intriguing experiments, I found this book more enjoyable and informative than many of the "grown-up" popular science books I've read.
