The book is done in comic book style panels and drawings, except for a few pages in colour; it is in black and white. There is a table of contents in the beginning to guide you to the answers for such questions as; why is space called space? What is the big bang theory? If the sky is blue why are clouds white? Many questions are here you did not even know you were curious about. This would serve as a tremendous supplement to science textbooks.
There are some amazing facts in here...the cygni/swan constellation did not appear until 1600. The irritating thing is that they do not tell you why, or why muons were measured at a greater amount at the base of a mountain . You do learn why it might be raining diamonds on Neptune and the musings of Einstein if the Model T would have been sold, as it was designed to- run on peanut oil or ethanol.
This is an absolute must for anyone who is curious about science and would be a great help to any students taking those courses.
