KIRKUS REVIEW

Here is robust, clear-cut science writing that moves swiftly from fact to theory to speculation and back to fact with authority and just a tinge of romance which permits the human mind to see many astounding facts of our universe in all their minute or austere beauty. Martin spotlights the physicists' and chemists' particles, atoms, molecules and crystals; the biologists' viruses, bacteria and diversity of Life; the geologists' knowledge of the earth, its evolution, climate; the astrophysicists' discoveries in space; the astronomers' facts and theories about the planets, sun, galaxies, stars and structure of the universe. A delight for the precocious, curious, and interested young scholar.
