Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great DK book It is so easy to read about a subject that is more than a little over my head. It asks and answers so many questions and makes you feel like you really understand them in the end. Lots of great diagrams and illustrations help make the point as well.

Editorial Reviews

"Detailed diagrams are one of the book's strongest points, as they provide the clearest explanations of difficult physics concepts." — Booklist
