Editorial Reviews

Review

Review from previous edition: "The book will appeal not just to scientists and science students but also to the interested lay person. And it passes the most difficult test of any dictionary - it is well worth browsing." --New Scientist

"All entries are clear and brief, written in no-nonsense prose...A handy reference work." --TES

"Handy and readable...for scientists aged nine to ninety" --Nature

I have this book as a reference now in all my science classrooms. If students don't understand a word or scientific term, they can look it up and get a good thorough explanation.It is much more descriptive then a regular dictionary.
