Front Cover
Contemporary Books, 1993 - Science - 309 pages

The Zimmermans range broadly across the enormous spectrum that is nature: from how the universe began to its probable fate, from microscopic viruses to dinosaurs, from the effects of radiation to the depletion of the ozone layer. This collection of essays is instructive, entertaining, and just plain fun.

This is brilliantly put together book. Awsome read. I've read it 5 or 6 times and I'm gonna do it again. I can put my hand up at school when the teacher says a big word and say "blah blah blah, it is *xxx* and also..." Everyone is like -_-
Yeah, it's is the best for any age, young adults and on.
