Press reviews

“I enjoyed the book because it was helpful as a detailed summary of the three different sciences, helping me to understand things I couldn't originally get my head around. Its use of facts, pictures and short paragraphs made it easy to read. It was more entertaining and less tedious than a normal science textbook... The activities were simple and easy to achieve, with informative instructions that also make it easier to see what you are learning.”
