    One thought on “The Science Book: Everything You Need to Know About the World and How It Works”

    1. This is my third science and general knowledge book by National Geographic, the others being "National Geographic Answer Book" and " The Knowledge Book". Since all three are of a similar theme, it obviously introduces comparisons and presents the question - aren't they all just the same book with a different cover? Indeed a valid question, since these days it is quite common to find the same book under different names and covers and consumers are getting constantly burned by discovering they hav [...]

    2. Hail Science!! Not much more I can say. :) From the human body, to the pterodactyl, to the rock (the life form not the actor), everything you've ever wanted to know about science is in this book. Great reference book to keep on your shelf for when you argue with a friend about science. :D

    3. As far as references of science go, this is a pretty good and thorough one. It does err, however, by teaching the hypotheses of macroevolution, uniformitarianism, and the rest of the caboodle as fact. Seeing as it has such a vast amount of other information, I shall forgive it this and give it four stars.

    4. The Science Book: Everything You Need to Know About The World and How It Works by National Geographic (National Geographic 2008)(500.0). This is very thorough, but it is written for the most casual reader. My rating: 7/10, finished 2009.
