    The Outline of Science, Volume 1 was written specifically with the
    man-on-the-street in mind as the target audience. Covering
    scientific subjects ranging from astronomy to biology to elementary
    physics in clear, concise and easily understood prose, this
    popular science work is largely as relevant today as when first
    published in 1922. Special emphasis is given to the principles
    of biological adaptation and evolution, especially how they relate to
    the rise of the human species from lower orders. Also included are
    the basics of the (then) fairly new concept of relativity and its impact
    on emerging scientific theories.
    Since first posted at Project Gutenberg in 2006, the text of
    The Outline of Science, Volume 1 has consistently ranked in the
    "Top 100 EBooks" category.
