Críticas: "This book is a happy reminder that science can become much less daunting in the hands of an enthusiastic teacher." (London Review of Books) "Steven Vogel capably demonstrates how a scientist can unite micro and macro perspectives in looking at the natural world.... His firsthand account of many of his own experiments, and the joy with which he recounts them, brings the scientific process to life." (Publishers Weekly) "Steven Vogel's obvious enthusiasm for the subject and his skill at writing shine through with clarity and joy." (Library Journal) "This is one of those books that powerfully, and often entertainingly, demystifies science." (Nature)"
