This is a fantastic book. Well written, well presented, with many fun and amazingly simple experiments with spectacular results. There is also an explanation of how the experiments apply to everyday life.
Great work!

It doesn't matter what your scientific specialty is (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, etc.) there's an experiment in this book for you. Most of them can be preformed with stuff you probably have lying around the house. Scientific explanations are included on how the experiments actually work. The activities are simple yet impressive enough to get anyone interested in science.

This book was put out by the geniuses at "The Naked Scientist", a weekly podcast on science produced in Britian.

I learned about this book on The Naked Scientist podcast, hosted by the very authors. The book is the compilation of a series of simple experiments targeted for young kids, easily performed with commonplace elements. Simple to follow, and with clear and concise explanations about why things work the way they do, I believe it is a welcome addition to any school library or personal collection.
