I didn't realize that this book is aimed at teens until I actually started reading it. It wasn't so much the level of the scientific content, but rather the writing style and some of the activity suggestions. Some of the science content was interesting, but there just wasn't enough to each topic to really grab my interest.

If you're looking for a way to simultaneously increase your knowledge and wow your friends with your infinite brainiac abilities, than this is definitely the book for you!

كتاب يتناول 101 معلومة يجب على الشخص أن يعرفها عن الأشياء المحيطة به..
بعضها بديهي وبعضها نغفل عنه في أيامنا..

طريقة الكتاب مميزة ومهضومة حيث هناك صفحة المعلومة ومن ثم صفحة لأسئلة أو تمرين حول الموضوع..
هو يستهدف فئة المراهقين أكثر ولكنه ممتع لأي فئة عمرية للقراءة لبساطة المعلومة ومتعتها..

This little book full of interesting facts like "Why we don't fall off the earth?" and "Where ar the most haunted houses in the world?" I'm thinking of using excertps as a friendly way to get kids into reading non-fiction and wanting to do research. Who doesn't want to know "Who invented the wheel?"

The book is full of answers to questions that we think about sometimes but never really search for answers like "Why is the sky blue?". I liked how they present complicated ideas in simple ways. There's also activities you can do that are related to the ideas.
