KIRKUS REVIEW

Excellently written, the emphasis here is on the word ""modern."" With great facility and confidence, Bertin, a noted British journalist and author of a book commissioned by the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority, explores the questions of energy, the atom, subterranean resources, the sun, machines, transportation, exploration, sound, and weather. Despite a singularly unattractive format, crowded print, and a poor quality paper, this text, written in an adult but comprehensible style is outstanding, both in the material it contains and in its manner of presentation.
