Synopses & Reviews
The Eyewitness Science series features landmark science experiments, discoveries, and theories together with clear explanations of scientific principles. Readers can follow the path of discovery through the minds of great scientist, from Galileo and Isaac Newton to Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.
It would be difficult to find a public library in the U.S. without at least one Eyewitness Book--many libraries own hundreds. The combination of on-target subject matter, with books on most of the subjects that interest both children and adults, and impeccable book design have made a dominant force that has changed the world of nonfiction publishing.
