    The book is pretty basic and a little old fashioned However, having said that there were a few ideas in there that I have never tried before that seem pretty interesting As any teacher knows, new ideas are priceless, especially if they lead to pupil engagement yet to be field tested I guess the one thing to really applaud this book for is that the experiments are always well chosen for the phenomenon they are trying to demonstrate This is not a whizz bang for the sake of it kind of book, the experiments are well chosen and adapted, pedagogically speaking.The experiments are well described and easy to follow with sound explanations throughout This is four stars instead of five because of how basic it is and dated it is, but I paid a pittance for it so it was worth every penny.
