KIRKUS REVIEW

This is definitely limited to students interested in atomic structure -- fairly advanced students of physics. In the vein of Mr. Tompkins in Wonderland, much of what atoms consist of and how they work are made comprehensible to the lay mind. Mr. Tompkins falls asleep over some professorial discourses on atoms, electrons, neutrons -- and dreams graphic dreams.
