Customer Reviews

very helpful intro/refresher for HS and beyond

This is a particularly lucid, easy to follow, pleasantly presented look at the basics. The illustrations and animations are very, very well done and really take advantage of this medium. The book is a great intro or refresher for a HS or college student (or beyond). Terrific job, David Ng. Please consider making more iBooks, whether on Chemistry or other subjects (Physics?).

Fantastic book

This is a great book, so why the 3 star rating? Because the font is so small that I can not read the book. Every time I try to read the book I fall to sleep because of the eye strain. Please fix the font issue and will change rating to 5 stars.

This book does has a great way of displaying highlighted text, Apple could learn from this book.

Great content!

Interesting.
