    Review:

    Over 900 expert-authored articles, some with line illustrations and diagrams, are extracted and condensed here from the McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology... The appendix includes conversion factors, measurement tables, fundamental constants, and a biographical listing of scientists. Also in the appendix is a "Bibliographies" section where titles (books and journals) are grouped by broad subject area. The volume ends with a 4,800-entry index... This book will be useful as a starting point for research in physics... Summing Up: Recommended. General readers; lower-division undergraduates. -- N. Zdravkovska, Georgetown University (Choice 2005-09-01)
