Gr 5–8—Each of these series titles provides an informative overview of a particular scientific concept. A colorful and open layout features photographs on almost every spread. In addition, a time line of corresponding events runs across the top of each page. Supplemental information is highlighted in "Science Booster" boxes and in profiles of important individuals. The texts offer key conceptsin a pleasing and readable format that would appeal to reluctant readers.Atomic Universepresents the history of radioactivity from Dmitry Mendeleyev's creation of the Periodic Table of the Elements to the use of nuclear reactors today.Digital Revolutionlooks at the history of transistor technology over time.Double Helixtraces the history of the structure of DNA from Mendel's pea experimentsto the current field of genetic engineering. Useful additions to science collections.—Maren Ostergard, King County Library System, Issaquah, WA SchoolLibrary Journal, A Reed Business Information Publication
