Fun to read

The illustrations in the book make a lot of sense in a not so serious way and makes the book fun to read. They have been done interestingly and at the same time without moving away from the concepts that the book is easily readable, unlike a textbook, in spite of dealing with dry and sometimes not so easy topics. I liked them a lot. I would recommend this book to all my friends and in fact, make them read it... Saralya P Narayanan

Sterling job by the authors!

Some of the themes tackled by this volume are complex, but the authors do a sterling job of keeping the tone light without talking down... What could have been a horrific mishmash of information has been adroitly broken down into digestible chunks by the authors Anusha Hariharan and Sowmya Rajendran. The everyday examples and references to popular culture and news makes it a book that youngsters ought to be able to relate to easily. Goodbooks.in
