" This style does not work for me after all, too bad. But for some kids or auto-didacts, it might be perfect. A short small book... I didn't read enough to be able to say if it's concise or superficial, though. " said.

" Basher finally does it again. Watch in amazement as Basher whips away at explaining physics. " said.

" If only I wasn't being forced to read this out loud as a bedtime book (when I'm half asleep), I might be learning a lot about the parts of physics I didn't get in school because they hadn't been invented yet. Up and Down quarts, positrons, Weak Forces... they all spin before my eyes, as my first grader asked for this for his birthday (he's a big Basher Science series fan) and in addition to reading it himself, he asks for chapters from it for bedtime reading! " said.

"Other noteworthy things about this series not mentioned in my review of the Biology book:
Simon Basher, the illustrator, originated this concept series in the UK for Toucan Books, and now published in the US by a Macmillan imprint.
Dan Green is the series writer.
Each title has a scientist consultant, this one James Valles at Brown University.
As with many smaller books, I question the need for a Table of Contents and Index in this series. It seems like one of those things the editors and publishers probably told Basher he needed and he just said OK. It would be interesting to see if this is something that was just added for the US publication
" said.

"Simon Basher. Basher Science: Extreme Physics (2013). Quantum physics is not an everyday subject but Basher Science makes it fun and easier to understand. The book is divided into four chapters; Quantum Folk; Particle Posse; Fundamental Forces; and Quantum Weirdness. Each concept has a large title, bullet pointed definition, discovery information, fun facts, and a page long personified description and colorful full page computer illustration. The characters make a hard topic lighthearted and interesting. The glossary explains physics terms in everyday language that is easy to comprehend. It would work better for someone with some physics background. This would work well in science unit, specifically physics. It's written for children but would be a great for adults as well. Ages: 11 years+" said.

" Good companion to Physics: Why Matter Matters!. A personified first-person narrative to example the basic principles of Quantum Mechanics, theory, Particle Physics, and history. Each topic is a character telling the story of itself.It might be best for advanced kids. Younger kids might not understand some of the allusions, but perhaps a great way for a kid and adult to discuss the book together and teach about the allusions. " said.
