If you like Eames, mathematics, outerspace you'll love this flipbook. You flip the pages and zoooom from the milky way through the solar system, into earth and ultimately into an atom in a man's hand.
Beautiful color images.

This picture book is an excellent pictorial view of the miniscule to the enormous. Very Interesting! Mathematics and science teachers at all levels should have this book in their classrooms. I can't wait to show my Algebra and Mathematics Laboratory students. On the other hand, this book would be interesting for anyone having interest in Science, Astronomy, Mathematics, and Measurement.

After seeing the film on which this little book is based, I can't help wishing it had more pictures. Still, it is a reminder of that amazing journey which takes us into the micro universe and out to the macro universe, alerting the viewer to the similarity between the two.

A physics professor showed our class the Powers of Ten film years ago and it blew my mind. The whole "as above so below" element still resonates with me today. This is a visual treat you will not forget and it's mobile! No need for a dvd player...you can flip the pages and see the action unfold over and over again.

I'm not sure what the reviewer below thought she bought but this is a FLIP BOOK. I collect them and can honestly say this is the Jewel of my entire collection. Hands down, the best flip book ever!

THE FLIP BOOK VERSION OF THIS BOOK IS NOT AS SATISFACTORY AS THE ORIGINAL FULL SIZE BOOK. I CONFESS THAT WHEN I BOUGHT IT RECENTLY I THOUGHT I WAS GETTING THE ORIGINAL. I WANTED MY GRANDAUGHTERS TO SEE THE BOOK WHICH HAD CHARMED ME MANY YEARS AGO. THE FLIP VERSION PICTURES ARE CLIPPED BADLY AND THE ORIGINAL TEXT, AS FAR AS I REMEMBER, IS FORESHORTENED. HOWEVER, FAILING GRTTING THE ORIGINAL, THIS WILL HAVE TO DO. HOWEVER, IF THE ORIGINAL IS FOR SALE, I WOULD GLADLY BUY A COPY. AARON POSNER

From a proton to the deeper reaches of space (at 10 million light years), this little gem has been an inspiration to me since I purchased it a few years ago. It is based on the film of the same name. It simply presents photos of each level with what you are looking at---one picture per page. Hence, the "flipbook" feature.

Going by the mathematical powers of ten (ie 10 to the +23 meters (outer space past our galaxy) to the proton at 10 to the -15 power, the structure of our universe and ourselves is endlessly fascinating to me. It actually solidifies my validation of the truth "as above, so below".

If one ever doubts that there is a Higher Power, just check this amazing visual feast of a book out!

A mind-expanding experience!
