I read the 1993 edition. The book is oversize with 448 pages, so there is a lot of material, a lot of illustrations. The writing is very accessible, aimed at 5th grade to high school. It is not detailed enough in the science to be much more than a very general reference tool. The illustrations are high quality, useful and clear; if you're looking for detailed pictures, also try The Ultimate Visual Dictionary, which has probably the best pictures you can find for a reference book of this type.
