Has it been many years since your last science class? Do you wish you knew more about science, but you just don’t have the time to read a heavy, sort-of-boring book? How Science Works is the answer to your problem.
How Science Works is broken down into five sections: matter, energy and forces, life, space, and Earth. Each section consists of short, easily manageable chunks of information that include helpful infographics. You can learn about all the basics of matter and then move on to robotics, genetics, even dark matter and dark energy. While all of the information is interesting, you will find some of it to be more useful in everyday life; the sections on plastics, recycling, extreme weather and climate change are particularly timely.
How Science Works is the perfect book for people who want to know more about science and our world, but don’t have a lot of time. It may not turn you into the next Stephen Hawking, but at least the next time you hear the term “string theory,” you’ll have a better idea of what it is.
