    1. If you know science well and think quickly and shallowly and like to skim over the surface of ideas, you may enjoy this book This book is composed of short, two to three page chapters It was extremely slow reading for me because it seemed choppy and shallow I kept trying to see deeper, but no luck.One example there is one sentence stating that Archimedes discovered principles of floating I thought he discovered how mass displaces water In other words, if you sit in a bathtub, the water level wil [...]


    2. I ve never read anyone else so skilled at making science transparent to the lay person I didn t like this as much as the book of hers I read last year, however, The Universe and the Teacup The Mathematics of Truth and Beauty , purely I think because this book is much shorter, choppier pieces most taken, I believe, from her columns in the Los Angeles Times That said, I thought the last section Political Science was very powerful and very right on the money There s no bullshitting here.


    3. This book is really cute I has short little essays on topcis such as Interference or Love or Clouds where KC Cole draws analogies from real life to explain the cosmos I read a chapter everytime I use the bathroom P and find its contents inspirational and neat to think about, and despite its simplicity, the clarity of the writing borderlines poetic.


    4. Great writer and interesting, make you think topics While reading this book I started most days with one or two of these science essays before getting out of bed K.C Cole used to write for the LA Times.


    5. An excellent and entertaining book for anyone interested in science, especially physics The author, K.C Cole does a fantastic job in drawing her readers with very engaging anecdotes from everyday life that are beautifully weaved into the fabric of their connections to science.



    6. Really enjoyed the well written prose, and the essays length 3 4 pages each was perfect for reading one or two before bed.
