This book is for all those who are interested about science and not just the traditional natural sciences as it also includes some social sciences. Put another way it’s a nice source of material for a brief overview of the achievements and concepts found everywhere on this planet and in some cases in the whole solar system. Each page discusses a scientific topic or something that is clearly related to science in brief overview and goes in chronological order by time. For those of us who desire a quick overview without getting lost in the intricacies and layers of scientific patterns, predictions, and properties, this is the book for you. Nothing more and nothing less.
