Collection Carnets de sciences
Publisher: Éditions Quae.
The Carnets de sciences collection publishes works intended for a wide audience seeking to acquire a scientific culture. These works are written by recognised specialists attempting to popularise their fields to answer questions that anyone might ask himself.
The writing is appropriate for non-specialists whilst presenting well-researched scientific enlightenment in a pleasant, easy-to-understand fashion. The reader improves his mind whilst enjoying himself. Initially, a series of questions and answers provides the reader with a basic knowledge of the subject. He can subsequently delve deeper and tackle the more specialised, unusual or entertaining topics. Display boxes at relevant locations throughout the text provide greater detail on some points. A journalistic catch phrase in the chapter heading whets the reader's curiosity.
