Book Review: Scientist, Scientist, Who do you see?, by Chris Ferrie

Available in bookshops nationwide.

cv_scientist_scientist_who_do_you_see.jpgI’m not sure if there are any other books on the subject matter of this book, but I found this one an intriguing and rather refreshing look at Scientists and their impact on the world. Everyday things we take for granted. The format is such that even fairly young children can get some sort of understanding of the world that is around them – and still evolving.

Einstein,
Einstein,
Who do you see?
I see Marie Curie
In her laboratory.
Curie,
Curie,
Who do you see?

And so on – featured are also Ahmed Zewail, Grace Hopper, James Maxwell, Ada Lovelace, George Washington Carver, Chien-Shiung Wu, Alan Turing, Anna Mani, Charles Darwin, Katherine Johnson, Chris Ferrie (the author and finally YOU! You can change the world.

At the back of the book is a short explanation of what each scientist has achieved.
I think this book has an important part to play. Science is an exciting field – ever-changing with technology.

The author Chris Ferrie is a physicist, mathematician and also very importantly, the father of four, encouraging from an early age an interest in science.
