Item Description...
Take a journey through time with an author who understands the politics, intrigue, and human nature of science inquiry. Be prepared to spend hours of delightful reading learning about everything you wanted to know about the quantum world, physics, and relativity.

Publishers Description
In volume three, students will look over Albert Einstein's shoulder as he and his colleagues develop a new kind of physics. It leads in two directions: to knowledge of the vast universe and its future (insights build on Einstein's theories of relativity), and to an understanding of the astonishingly small subatomic world (the realm of quantum physics). Students will learn why relativity and quantum theory revolutionized our world and led to the most important ideas in modern science, maybe of all time.
In the three-book "The Story of Science" series, master storyteller Joy Hakim narrates the evolution of scientific thought from ancient times to the present. With lively, character-driven narrative, Hakim spotlights the achievements of some of the world's greatest scientists and encourages a similiar spirit of inquiry in readers. The books include hundreds of color photographs, charts, maps, and diagrams; informative sidebars; suggestions for further reading; and excerpts from the writings of great scientists.

Ecstatic  May 5, 2008
Book was great. Probably an improvement over the previious two, which I did not think was possible. My daughters love the book and thereby started to love Science even more.
All science books should be written like this  Mar 2, 2008
Joy Hakim's book on modern physics is the most exciting science book I have read in my 45-plus years as a scientist. The book truly is, as she puts it, "written for young thinkers of all ages." She doesn't call it a "textbook," but the book not only is that, it is also the way all science textbooks should be written. To her, physics is not just a body of observations and theories; it is the process of discovery.

Although Einstein's thinking is the underlying centerpiece of the book, Hakim deftly traverses, without mathematics, the whole history of physics from electromagnetism, atomic structure and chemical bonding to special and general relativity, quantum mechanics, black holes, quarks, supernovae, dark matter, dark energy, and more. This is a story-book journey of discovery that is described in terms of the people involved. Physics is brought to life in a most engaging way. On every page it seems, physics, the mother of all science, is embellished with side-bar stories about key discoveries, how they were made and the lives of the people who made them. Numerous color photographs adorn the pages throughout.

The two great and exciting present-day frontiers of scientific research are physics and neuroscience. Joy's book almost makes me wish, after a lifetime of being a neuroscientist, that I had started off in physics. Science is great fun, and this book proves it.

Wrong title  Sep 20, 2007
Another well written and produced volume in this series however, the series of books should be called the Story of Physics not the Story of Science. It covers very well, and in an engaging manner, the history and development of physics and the characters that populate that history. However, there is a big failing in the series so far. There is no attention given to biology. I'm left wondering if biology and a discussion of evolution is just too hot a topic for an American writer and audience. Having said that the series is good to have on hand for the kids to dip into so that they can learn a bit more about the subjects and scientists they are learning about in their Science classes. Not bad for the parents to pick up a few interesting facts either.

Science, History, & Vocabulary! Oh MY!  Nov 7, 2006
This book is informative and interesting, not dry and/or stuffy like most science books. This is the 2nd or 3rd in the "Story of Science" series that I have purchased and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Joy Hakim not only writes about science, but she writes about how the world was when these scientists were making their discoveries and the struggles they had while doing so. Another great feature is that any word the reader might not know and understand is explained in the margins.
