    I m pretty sure this is supposed to be for kids but I actually did really enjoy it too, it covered a wide variety of topics, some of which I knew about already but it was accessible and succinct I think it would be good for someone who doesn t know much about science because it really covers mostly really basic things in my opinion but like if you have a solid foundation of science knowledge you might not get anything new out of this.

    I really enjoyed this book There were different sections so that you could flip to one you liked or read the book all the way through Some of thecomplicated concepts like how the puddle of water on the road illusion works had diagrams, making it much easier to understand I didn t know pretty much anything about the answers to most of the questions, and the ones I did know something about went into enough detail that they were interesting to read Scheckel went very in depth as for h I really enjoyed this book There were different sections so that you could flip to one you liked or read the book all the way through Some of thecomplicated concepts like how the puddle of water on the road illusion works had diagrams, making it much easier to understand I didn t know pretty much anything about the answers to most of the questions, and the ones I did know something about went into enough detail that they were interesting to read Scheckel went very in depth as for his answers, but you still understood what he was saying There is someadvanced vocabulary, but nothing that the average person wouldn t be able to handle Almost every topic also had a bit of extra information with it This is probably partially due to the fact that the QA s were taken from Scheckel s newspaper column, so they all had to be within a certain length At first I found this a little annoying, but I grew used to it and began to enjoy the extra info.It was definitely worth the read there was a lot of information that was easy to handle and fun to learn

    I don t know how accurate the answers are but the questions were intriguing It made me go look upinfo about some things It s an easy read and a book you don t have to read cover to cover Skip around and find the topics that interest you But at least read all the questions.even if you don t read the answers The questions lead you to askquestions


  5. says:

    Easy to understand with lots of interesting information Can easily be read in the presented order or skipped to whatever subject is needed Great for those looking for easy explanations or just want to brush up on their science knowledge ARC from Netgalley

    Ask a Science Teacher is a book by Larry Scheckel The book contains 250 questions and the answers to those questions Not all questions can be answered, but this book answering 250 is a good place to start Honestly, I know a lot of the answers to these questions, but having them phrased by someone else makes it quite effective.Scheckel writes in a friendly, conversational style Sometimes the answers go beyond what the questioner asks, but it is interesting to see where it goes For instance, Ask a Science Teacher is a book by Larry Scheckel The book contains 250 questions and the answers to those questions Not all questions can be answered, but this book answering 250 is a good place to start Honestly, I know a lot of the answers to these questions, but having them phrased by someone else makes it quite effective.Scheckel writes in a friendly, conversational style Sometimes the answers go beyond what the questioner asks, but it is interesting to see where it goes For instance, you might be familiar with the Marianas Trench in the Pacific Ocean It is the deepest part of the ocean floor at approximately 35,756 ft or 10898.429 m beneath the ocean surface It talks about how we know about that value and at the same time adds some interesting trivia For example, did you know that a person that went down to that depth took a watch with him that was on the arm of the submersible, and it was still operating throughout the dive Some of the questions are interesting since I never thought to ask them For example, one of the questions is Why does the Earth have Gravity This leads Scheckel into a tangent that explores Isaac Newton s formulation of Gravity and some bits and pieces that talk about Einstein s Field Equations of Gravity I mean, I know Gravity is just a thing that objects with mass will have Even two bricks hanging from ropes will attract each other in a manner that is observable Perhaps when I was a child I asked such questions but that was a while ago.The book is separated into 11 Chapters All of the questions are interesting ones, but some of them are just off kilter to me Some of them I just being dismissed as stupid out of hand, and that probably isn t a good thing When I was a child, I was told that there is no such thing as a stupid question, and I should keep that in mind even when I am looking at a question that discusses whether Telepathy is real or not My immediate reflexive response is no Telepathy does not exist If any of that stuff existed it wouldn t be on the fringe of science.In any case, there are occasional illustrations along with the text to show what is being said in a different way It shows a cross section of the human throat to show the epiglottis and how it protects your lungs when you eat or drink.This book is really well done Along with a lot of simple questions, there are questions that get surprisingly deep I really enjoyed it and would love to refer back to it again

    This book could have only been better if it had been written sooner So I could have enjoyed reading it sooner It makes you interested in science, eventhen you are And or makes science something that you can be interested In.

    Excellent bookAs a retired chemist, I found the book to be technically correct As a full time nerd, I found a lot of fascinating stuff I did not know, clearly and interestingly explained It was a fun read.


  9. says:

    Though I didn t agree with everything stated and there were a few grammatical errors, this book filled me with scientific curiosity and the desire to learn .

    This would have been much better if I were either younger or read fewer in depth science books Still, for a really top level, basic overview of a lot of science topics it s good.
