Nearly every topic has a diagram to go with it to further your understanding of the topic and make the book more interesting. Some parts I enjoy about the book is the wide variety of topics and straightforward expl ...more

Picked this up from the library to see if its worth buying. It is! Short explanations about everything. Very cool way to introduce science to kids and stay interested as an adult! Buying this one!

"Science of Everything" by the National Geographic Society is a beautifully illustrated book that describes how things work.

The book is separated into parts that are further subdivided into chapters. So chapter one is devoted to Mechanics, specifically the Laws of Motion and Energy. Alongside these explanations, we get little pictures that explain how things work. So in that section, we might find a part devoted to a jet turbine, with a cross-sectioned image of the little parts that go into it.

I wanted to read this book as a review for what I learned earlier. I was very impressed with how it helped me. It is very easy to read and explains facts clearly for any reader. The pictures and model illustrations coherence the reading along well and I found it offered excellent reinforcement for what I already knew. I would recommend this as a must read for all entry-level, science undergraduates.
