Review:

Anyone who thinks science is confusing or dull has not browsed through Curt Suplee's magnificent work. He explains why your shoelaces become untied (but never spontaneously tie themselves), why you don't fall on your head when the roller coaster goes loop-de-loop, and how a slice of pizza passes through your digestive system and out the other end. With 110 topics covering matter and motion, forces of nature, nutrients and fuels, and the chemistry of life, and with sensational photography and illustrations, Suplee has pulled off one of the most readable, informative, addictive, beautiful science reference books ever.
