This volume attempts to summarize knowledge in many scientific fields and to present it in a manner understandable to the average well educated reader. The considerations include not only chemistry and physics but also geography, physiology, pathology, biology, eugenics and many other related topics. For the reader who wants a cursory survey of experimentation and of the newer discoveries, the volume should prove attractive. For the special reader it is far too diffuse to be significant. It is a most useful text, however, in indicating the manner in which Science Service makes modern science understandable.
