"They are a great introduction to science for little children" - by Panaromix
We have most of the Level 1 books. They are a great introduction to science for little children. The only reason these don't get five stars is because a slightly bigger font size would have made these books excellent.

"Nice book. Quite high quality" - by Hanson
Nice book. Quite high quality, nice colors, easy to understand, and with lots of information. Perfect book for a 8th grader like me. The only thing is that the answers to the work questions are located online, it'a a pain in the eye.

Usually ships within 2 to 5 weeks.

"An empowering guide to combating the stress epidemic!" - by STEPHEN PLETKO (My e-mail: PLETKO911 @ YAHOO.CA)
XXXXX

“If an expectant mother is experiencing high levels of stress—for whatever reason over a period of time—her elevated stress levels may, through a mechanism we are just coming to understand, result in her child being ‘born anxious’.”

The above comes from the prologue of this well-researched and well-written book by Daniel Keating, Ph.D. He is professor of psychology at the University of Michigan. Keating focuses on developmental differences (cognitive, social, & emotional) and in physical and mental health.

The book begins by explaining the biological mechanism hinted at in the above extract. Without going into the technical details (which this book articulates quite well), we’re told that “stress can get under the skin” so as to last a lifetime.

Then the author goes through the individual stages—from baby (baby’s first year is critical) to toddler, to adolescent to adult—explaining the current science on stress for each stage, as well as ... full review

"Marine Biology In The Very Short Introductions Series" - by Robin Friedman (Washington, D.C. United States)
The ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle said that "all men by nature desire to know". The "very short introduction" series of Oxford University Press offers an excellent way to pursue the breadth of the desire to know in many varied subjects and endeavors. For example, the study reviewed here, the 354th book in the series, is Philip Mladenov's recent very short introduction to Marine Biology (2013). According to OUP, the book is the only short introduction currently available on the subject. It explores well the sources, nature, and diversity of marine life. Over the years, I have explored bits and pieces of the subject but this book was my first cohesive overview. Mladenov is a former Professor of Marine Science at the University of Otago, New Zealand and currently serves as Director of Seven Seas Consulting, LTD. Mladenov has over 35 years experience in his subject.

"An outstanding resource for birders of all abilities" - by Daniel L. Edelen (Mt. Orab, OH USA)
It is difficult to imagine a more helpful guide to understanding birds than "The Sibley Guide to Bird Behavior". Illustrated by David Allen Sibley, with contributing text by a host of bird authorities, this work is the ultimate companion to Sibley's field guides. Anyone can gain a greater appreciation for our feathered friends by picking up this book.
Crammed with useful information, the guide opens with an understanding of how birds fly, their anatomy, and intellectual capabilities. There are chapters on origins, classification methods, bird behavior, migration, communication, and breeding. Also included are overviews of habitat distinctions, populations, and conservation.
This general format is carried over into the largest section of the book - a comprehensive look at all the families of North American avians. For instance, each family of birds (e.g. - Hummingbirds, Vireos) will have chapters within the text providing specific analysis of:
*Taxonomy
*Adaptations to Lifestyle
*Habitats
*Food and Foraging
*Breeding
*Vocalizations
*Migration
*Conservation
*Accidental Species
This clear breakdown ... full review

"The chronological approach is great for giving perspective" - by Amazon Customer
The chronological approach is great for giving perspective. If I had unlimited funds I would order the entire series. As it is, I've ordered the Chemistry, Biology and Physics Books.

"A Wonderful and Informative Biology Book." - by Gillian (Winnetka, CA USA)
I used this book for my A'level exams, it was such a helpful and informative book. Even now, I still find it very useful; which as we all know is not typical for most texts.
I recently bought a new copy & put the old one to REST. Yes! Because this book is sooooo big - EXPECT IT TO FALL APART!

"An essential bedside book for anyone interested in science" - by I. Dobson (Thunder Bay, Ont)
Dawkins is more famous for his own eloquent science writing but in this case he has selected short exerpts from a wide range of science writers (not including himself) and compiled them into one highly readable book. All the essays are short and for the most part very interesting, drawn from infuential works in all areas of scientific endeavour. Each chapter is preceed by an introduction from Dawkins explaining the significance of the essay or some interesting aspect of the authors work that may pique your interest to read on. The chapters are loosely organized under fairly general themes but each stands alone and can be read independantly. I often pick up the book when I have a few idle minutes and want something quick and thought provoking to fill my time.
This would be a great Christmas gift for anyone with a broad general interest in science, whether or not ... full review

"Easy 5 star book" - by Fuze59
Easy 5 star book.
I got the audio version and it was extremely well narrated. So much good information here. Examines previous and current dogma surrounding so much in how we think the body works in terms of performance. Brilliant summary of where we are at today and examines all the current and historical science. Provides many analogues that go against what the prevailing are commonly held beliefs are.
Cannot say enough good things about it.
I now know why when deep in the trenches of a half mara I start singing my favourite songs and it seems to help my mental state.
