I remember this book vividly as playing a large part in my childhood. This was the book I was obsessed with when I was about 10, the book I read once every 2 weeks. It changed the way I think about science, the universe, and family. It is extraordinarily well written and easy to read yet thought provoking. I tried to choose a picture with cover art that was most similar to the one I read…. for some reason that matters when it comes to this book! If you haven’t read this book, please do. It is one of those rare books that you can learn just as much from as an adult as you can as a child.
This book truly was, and is, the gem of my bookshelf.
