This book teaches you about eyeballs, not what it said it teaches. It said it teaches about light, but it was wrong. It teaches you about eyeballs. Yes, eyeballs! Plus, light bounces off a reflective angle. Oh I recommend this book to ophthalmologists, and physicists. And plus every human has 5.5 volts of electricity in the lungs.
I read this about 6 months ago. In the greenhouse. It was the second Horrible Science book that I ever read. It was also about eyeballs, not just light.
