One thing that no-one's pointed out - while its style is very similar to science books etc, the humor of this book was really driven home when a friend was doing a paper on Creationism. He found a book that this one clearly EXACTLY lampoons, from size and layout to ink color to picture style - everything. This makes the blast of Creationism all the better. I don't want to spoil it for those who haven't read it, but the "Evolutionist vs Creationist" bit (p. 65) is completely hilarious, especially as the "Evo" side of the argument is actually one part of the book other than the copyright that is played straight.
of introductory-level science books. It's full of marvelous,
but horribly wrong, illustrations, such as showing how
an eclipse happens when the Sun comes between the Moon
and the Earth. His attempt to resolve the
Evolution-Creationism debate is guaranteed to satisfy
neither side. No major field of science is left
This book would be most appreciated by people with a
scientific background, although it would make an excellent
gift to a child of someone you really wanted to confuse.

Brilliant and not at all stupid. A collector's item in a class of its own, which will pass down the generations in my family - but only down the lines with a sense of humour.Published on November 17, 2013 by Costas Papaikonomou
