The Family Encyclopaedia of Science by Optimum Books is a great read covering all aspects of modern science. It has five sections — Astronomy, Physics, Chemistry, Transport and Technology — and is chock full of interesting trivia and tidbits. For instance, “Mars is a reddish desert studded with extinct volcanoes.”
This encyclopaedia tells you this and much more. You will discover facts you never even thought about. With life-like illustrations and photographs, this compendium is good for days when you just want to curl up in bed and read.
It looks formidable but it’s hard to put down once you got started!
