The creative author of this book has filled it with novel and interesting demonstrations of physics, chemistry, and electronics experiments that are perfect for readers who love to tinker.

The science in these projects is very nicely explained and the directions are good enough for their completion.
(Chemical Education Today
The book is a job well done, and I recommend it for anyone trying to get physics across to non-specialist audiences.
(Chris Waltham Physics Today
Interesting and written in very clear conversational style... most people will want to try these experiments because they are fun.
(F. W. Menk The Physicist
This is a book that science teachers will love. With simple experiments that illustrate physical principles and then use basic mathematics to explain why they work, it will liven up classes for a wide age range.
