Just got Isaac Asimov’s Guide to Science in the mail and I’m really looking forward to reading it cover to cover. I checked this out from my local library a while back and was stunned by the sheer amount of information contained within it’s stout 945 pages. The copy I got is in excellent condition so I’m really jazzed. This is probably going to become one of the best overall reference books on my shelf.
The book goes in-depth into most major areas of both the physical and biological sciences including a whole section on mathematics within the context of science.
