He includes interesting stories that span astronomy, geology, biology, meteorology and history. Everything from the exploding universe, runaway poles, magnetic fields, radiation, atoms, snow, ice, tides, tsunami, how clouds stay aloft, earth;s motion, in-tune mosquitoes, wind, air pressure, lightning, thunder, meteors, electricity, sneezes, animals, cells, and much more.
The author explains each phenomenon in an enthusiastic, clear and understandable manner, without bogging the reader down with complicated science.

Each chapter covers something different, so the reader can dip in and out without getting confused. This book was a joy to read.
