Recommended to Suzy by: dad

You know how every science book boasts joyously that it is "accessible"? And then fries your brain into foul smelling grey pancakes ten words in? Well, the boast is truth in this case. Accessible, but not easy. Fascinating, but not facetious. The heart of this book is a journey into science, and Silver is both a trustworthy guide and reassuring companion.

Unfortunately, most of the facts and formulae have already escaped my mind. But this book left me with a lingering sense of wonder and oddly enough, gratitude.
