The Universe and Eye: Making Sense of the New Science [Hardcover]

Timothy Ferris , Ingram Pinn


Available from these sellers.



Book Description

April 1993 0811803007 978-0811803007
This is a layman's guide to modern science which combines the off-beat humour of Ingram Pinn's illustrations with text by Timothy Ferris, whose other books include "Coming of Age in the Milky Way" and "The Mind's Sky". The subject matter ranges from chemistry to cosmology and from marine biology to scientific morals, and delves into matters which concern man's environment, economies, personal health and cosmic future. Pinn's work, which generally depicts mankind belittled or bewildered by the world around him, first appeared in "New Scientist" in 1976, and illuminates the theories, issues and discoveries that have occupied scientists in recent years. The 80 watercolours in this book include both published and new work.

2.0 out of 5 stars This book is entertainment Oct. 18 2005
By Paul B. Olsen - Published on Amazon.com
This book begins entirely entertaining, then levels off after the middle chapters. Each chapter is one page, that can be read in about 60 seconds, and lays out the author's view on a particular modern scientific topic.

I really enjoyed some of the historical vignettes on famous, and not so famous scientists.

I keep this book in that special room that one tends to visit once a day for a two to three minute period of time. I secretly think that is the author's intent for where the audience should read the book.

Worth the buy at a discount price.
