New edition of a compelling textbook. Skinner & Porter (Yale U. & U. of Washing) have written to non-major college students and general readers. Math demands are light or absent. Illustrations are lucid drawings and good photos--all in color and very abundant. Uncommon hybrid: a textbook for the coffee table. Deserves better than a paper cover. Annotation c.
