I found this to be an interesting book that delves into topics of science in a different, kind of trendy way. A lot of the material is well known if you have been around long enough and read science type books. It was an entertaining type of read covering a wide range of scientific topics. I especially liked the concluding chapter on the future and in particular nanotechnology which I find fascinating. ( )

Actually, quite a lot of what's in this book was in my science books, and much of the rest shouldn't be. The book has interesting snippets of popular science treated somewhat better than they would be in a newspaper or general-interest magazine. There's also some interesting biographical information, and a bunch of exhortation to follow the dictates of the environmental movement with none of the scientific and economic dissent against those dictates presented. It's somewhat interesting reading, especially for the popular science bits, but one of the weaker books in the genre. ( )

A book on science for the layperson. No special science knowledge required and a nice read. I wasn't as thrilled with the PC tone of the book, but still good information. ( )
