Reviews

"A handy and useful reference book."--Science Books & Films "The definitions, which range in length from one word to several hundred, are clear and augmented in many instances by helpful illustrations." --Choice "This is something more than a dictionary: in addition to the definitions of terms that one would expect, the book supplies seventy tables of key data in the physical sciences, giving it a status approaching that of a handbook . . . The definitions are more complex than those found in more general science dictionaries . . . This would be a good individual purchase for someone seeking a comprehensive source or quick reference, particularly at the paperback price." --American Reference Books Annual "Never has the need for general science writing been more urgent than today, and Emiliani is a talent to be welcomed . . . I recommend Emiliani's Dictionary of the Physical Sciences...As its name implies, it is basically physics, chemistry, geology and cosmology. It consists of 230 pages of definitions of terms, arranged alphabetically, followed by 130 pages of more useful and interesting tables. Some of these cover such exotic data as meteor impacts on the Earth and the composition of gems."--New Scientist "A handy and useful reference book."--Science Books & Films "The definitions, which range in length from one word to several hundred, are clear and augmented in many instances by helpful illustrations." --Choice "This is something more than a dictionary: in addition to the definitions of terms that one would expect, the book supplies seventy tables of key data in the physical sciences, giving it a status approaching that of a handbook . . .
