What is the book about?
“What Color is the Sun?: Mind-Bending Science Facts in the Solar System’s Brightest Quiz” is written by Brian Cleggs, author of many articles and books on science.
This book is a collection of popular questions on science.
What does this book cover?
“What Color is the Sun?” is structured in a quiz format. There are enough questions for 2 quizzes with 6 ordinary rounds and 2 specials rounds. Each round is thematic (Mathematics, Science Fiction etc.) and has eight questions in it.
Every question has a bunch of associated facts in addition to page long explanation. The book can be used solo or for an actual quiz.
What did I like?
Most of the questions are quite interesting. Their solutions and associated facts are well explained and will keep a reader occupied. In addition, the variety of subjects makes this book interesting.
I did not find any obvious mistakes either.
What did I not like?
I would have liked to see more questions in this book. Ideally, this book should have had enough for four quizzes (in its current form)
“The Color of the Sun” is a decent book on science. It reminds me of the books I used to read when I a kid and so I have sneaking nostalgic affection for it. This will be a good time pass on an airplane or in a nerd party.
I recommend this book.
Incidentally, the answers to the questions in the quotes are
