What a super book - another in the series of factual books for young learners from Dorling Kindersley.

Worth noting the clear and memorable introduction to influential scientists. As you might expect from author, Richard Hammond, it is fun and interactive, while being true to science. Definitely a book to be ...more

I read this book and I give it 4 stars because you learn a lot from it and it has a lot of humor like a picture a very good and old painting with some apples falling on him.

I recommend this book.

For this level of a book it was great fun and informative (at least in revision terms).

Liked it.

This book was unique in the fact it was the only one I had about force and gravity. This was a great guide to how gravity works in the universe.
