The Outline of Science is a nonfiction best seller, which was published in 1922 and sold more than 100,000 in 5 years. The book was written by Sir John Arthur Thomson, a Scottish naturalist and an expert on soft corals who wrote several well-known books. The Outline of Science, Vol. 1 is easy to understand and suitable for everyone’s reading. The subjects cover astronomy, biology, and elementary physics. It is also as relevant today as when first published in 1922. It specifically emphasizes on the principles of biological adaptation and evolution as to their relationship with the rise of human species from lower orders. The book also includes the basics of relativity and its impact on emerging scientific theories, which was a fairly new concept then.
