    This book has been well used by both myself and my daughter to increase our knowledge levels. Me for general interest and her specifically for knowledge relating to her current school projects. The interactive nature of the book gives multiple learning options through reading, videos, and ongoing tests. I like these Open University iBooks. I have also purchased the fundamental forces iBook and will purchase others.
