This book was clearly a lot of work. Some parts are befuddling, others quite interesting. ( )

I received this as a First Reads program through GoodReads. Granted, I'm giving this review (very) belatedly, as I started this book a far while back, but I have finally gotten around to finishing it.

Part of the reason it took so long to finish this (besides being married, working a job/two jobs at times, coaching, three daughters, etc), is that there is just so much information involved in it. Which is why this book is such a tremendous book to begin with. Its 237 pages of infographics, each page filled with lots of information, __A LOT__ to take in.

The book starts with the big bang, and ends with AI (though only one infographic devoted to AI). Each two-page spread covers a different topic, and each topic segues into the next (albeit sometimes it's a bit of a remote thread that carries over).

This is definitely a wonderful guide, and so full of information, that it fits great onto any desk, for a fun reference, and a great science beginner book to any teenager (or even younger) getting into science.

As this was a pre-release edition, I did notice a few typographic errors and misspellings (or extra 0's or missing commas in numerical orders), but overall presented very well. ( )
