THE STORY OF LIGHT is not a science fiction novel by
one of the genre's grandmasters. Instead Ben Bova provides
an engaging explanation on the importance of light in our
lives. He uses several approaches including scientific,
medical, religious, and social to illuminate a complex
topic so that the average individual can understand it.
Even with the vernacular included, the book is written so
that readers will grasp most, if not all, the topics yet is
written in a manner as if Mr. Bova was telling a story.
The full phenomena and impact of light in everyday
existence is fine reading though more pictures and
illustrations would have increased the illumines of this
well designed book, but THE STORY OF LIGHT remains fun and
educating so that readers will understand the significance
of Let There Be Light.
