Booklist Review: "At first glance, the Do It Yourself series looks less like a front-to-back book and more like a hodgepodge collection of science activities. This is partly due to ambiguity regarding when one lesson ends and the next begins. But, in fact, there is an intelligent organization to each volume, and the series would make an ideal supplement to science classes. A modular layout and dynamic photos keep things moving, while the experiments, which appear on nearly every other page, feature lists of readily available materials, the steps required to pull off the magic, and warnings as to when adult supervision is required. Simple Machines uses modern and historical examples and frequently challenging experiments to demonstrate planes, screws, wedges, and so forth. Hours of fun, education, and cleanup await.--Kraus, Daniel Copyright 2009 Booklist"
