WAVES, THE ELECTROMAGNETIC UNIVERSE
Published by The National Geographic Society

"Starting with an amusing illustration of flourescently-lit kids on the black book jacket, the book incorporates a fine variety of photographs illustrating visible evidence of the mostly unseen [electromagnetic] waves. There's an eerie, miraculous element to some views, and while the clear explanations shed light on complex phenomena, the author candidly admits that many aspects of the EM spectrum are mysteries yet to be solved by science. The final segment... displays five examples of how assorted rays were used to study the 1994 comet collisions with Jupiter."
