KIRKUS REVIEW

Too bad this comes on the heels of other competent attempts at a general survey of the field of science for the layman, for this is, perhaps, the easiest reading of the lot for the average uninitiate. Without dramatizing too much, Shepherd succeeds first in presenting a swift general survey of various aspects of science, then in presenting modern findings and their importance in terms that anyone can understand. He combines the two methods, so that one gets not only a picture of the individual science, but a cross section of their inter-relation.
