1.0 out of 5 stars Very small font size & Black and White - Bad idea as a gift
By Client on April 11, 2018
I bought it as a gift for a child and I should have bought another, more attractive book.

Colors Black and White; Very small font size.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as ever
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 12, 2017
I've bought this for my 8 year old nephew for christmas as I don't think he's ever seen one before and he's about the right age to be amazed by a lot of the records and photos inside.

Love the cover! Metallic 3D effect front and back - looks great. It's a good size - a big book in little hands and 255 pages (the last page is just an advert). It's as interesting as I remember it and that is 'even' taking the internet into consideration!

Inside we are met with punchy facts/records - great photographs and visuals like infographics/graphs/tables.The GB of R has moved with the times here and we see subjects such as body modification - 3D printing and pollution and environment.

Here's a quick look at the contents . . .

Each topic has several sub sections and is jam packed with interesting facts - figures - graphs and photos.

I've loved having a quick mooch through this book before santa wraps it! Very pleasantly surprised.
