Professor Ray?s unique philosophy of science approach focuses on introducing you to the basics of science and the spirit that motivates many scientists, and helping you make the transition from outside observer of science to active participant. In meeting those goals, he has written a highly readable book that gives you a greater understanding of the techniques of science as well as the experience of doing science.
