If Larry Gonick's Cartoon Guides were available when I was in school, I might have aced my chemistry final. Instead, I passed without flying colors.
For each guide, Larry teamed up with an expert in the field, and each book reflects current curriculum--mirroring the standard textbooks in chemistry, physics, genetics, and environmental science. Larry's cartoons and wit make the science memorable and understandable.
"It puts textbooks to shame," says Matthew Meselson, Professor of Biology, Harvard University of The Cartoon Guide to Genetics.
And, for the social science majors who thought they'd never have to take math again, there's The Cartoon Guide to Statistics.
If you are considering one of the Cartoon Guides for your class, please order an examination copy. If you've decided to require one, please request a desk copy.
