Description

E=MC2. A brilliant premise, but you could never understand it till now. Physics, genetics, chemistry, biology, astronomy: science is changing so rapidly, that it's almost impossible for a novice to keep track of the new ideas that are shaping our present...and altering our future. Here's a friendly, expert guide that will steer you through the modern maze of knowledge, a nuts-and-bolts "factopedia" that hones in on the really big concepts that have made an impact on our world. Getting the information you're looking for is simplicity itself: just turn to any one of the basic sections--The World Around Us, The Humanity Within Us, and The Mind Within Us-to find full coverage of all the key movers and shakers, handily listed in specific subsections by their discipline. There's no plunging through a mass of extraneous information; each gets right to the heart of the matter. There's no better way to stay scientifically informed!show more
