Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "To explain high-interest STEM topics, these titles in the Top Secret Science series (6 titles) tell the stories behind recent headlines, government cover-ups, and forgotten history. As the series name suggests, readers will uncover many previously kept secrets in business, technology, government, and the military. A variety of fonts, colorful stock photos, and detailed text (arranged in digestible chunks) lend to the enticing layout. Medicine examines both successful and botched results in medical research, as well as the pros and cons of keeping such studies a secret. Each book concludes with a look at future endeavors in the field and thought-provoking questions that synthesize the topic and get kids thinking beyond it. Most important, the books complement one another, allowing students to find relationships between medicine and space, cybersecurity and the military, and more.--Angela Leeper Copyright 2010 Booklist"
