The Universe Verse, by James Lu Dunbar - Book Review
The Universe Verse is about the creation of the universe, our solar system, and the origin and evolution of life. In his book Dunbar covers the most important basic concepts of physics, chemistry and biology. He covers these important concepts accurately and in comic book form.
He presents the factual knowledge in a very condensed form using verse with images, which help to introduce the content. The verse gets directly to the point in presenting the science knowledge, but not so much of explaining it. It's a comic. But the verses and illustrations give a great overview of the basic concepts of physics, chemistry and biology, and they provide a short story of the origin and development of the universe.
A comic book with verses is quite an unusual type of science book. But it is interesting and entertaining at the same time. Since the text parts are short, reading Dunbar's “The Universe Verse” is like flying through all the science of our universe and evolution in high speed. It's a great book for youth and adults interested in the origin and development of the universe and life.
