His book on science and the history of science looks at topics such as why Copernicus's ideas were contentious how Galileo worked out his theories on motion and inertia and what the discovery of DNA mea. Really good and comprehensive but for some topics I was less familiar with I had to googlewatch some videos to fully understand the concepts I m not sure who it s written for adults or The Cutting Room: A Novel of Suspense kids but Inow as a child I would have been a bit lost with some of
the writing occasionally it needlessly used big wordswriting Occasionally it needlessly used big words long sentences and diagrams would have made some concepts easier to understand This was a very easy read and it explained everything so simply I think I am smarter now Whenever I pick up a Dorling Kindersley DK book in our local bookstore I expect to find inside rich color illustrations interspersed with manageable chunks of information The Science Book part of DK s Big Ideas Simply Explained series doesn t disappoint This volume which I received as a Goodreads First Reads giveaway presents a concise history of science chronologically from Airstotle to Z bosons Because the book is ordered as a timeline the topics skip around from plate tectonics to chromosomes to the two slit experiment in only a few pages Of course no single book can cover both the width and breadth of science Think of this book as a uick reference a Reader s Digest version of science so in a few minutes you now something about which before you new nothing This is a book of names discoveries dates and diagrams There are very few euations instead there are flow diagrams that show in super abbreviated form the thought process that led to a discovery The accessible text and the wealth of images make this a great book to eep handy like a favorite snack food to digest one nugget at a time This book like a science history though without the philosophy of science and less about the actual ideas You will learn about who came up with an idea and how this idea is connected to other ideas or CONCEPTS AND NOT SO MUCH ABOUT and not so much about actual idea This book is definitely not structure well for audiobook version It was a little bit of a mission getting through this book in that particular format because this book is of the type of book like the bible or uran that can be opened at any page to learn about a new scientist Learning about a scientist really briefly one after another can get tiring really fast The biggest plus after reading this book is that I have a MUCH better understanding who were the major and important scientist of history Not so much their concepts and theories or work themselves because that could get rushed because of the sheer amount
of scientist crammedscientist crammed one book but I did get a fair idea who they were I would recommend the paperback version of this book but definitely not the audioSome memorable scientist that I got from this book wereArchimedes a Greek mathematician that brought to the table modern calculus and concepts of infinitesimals to prove a range of geometric theorems Also an accurate approximation of piZhang heng astronomer eclipses and light 74 CE Ibn Al haytham was a scientist of the golden Islamic age a thousand years ago mainly nown for his contributions in optics Copernicus really early scientist nown for the sun being the cent.
