Bill Tillery provides a user-friendly introductory resource in his book Physical Science, ISBN 9780073512211. This comprehensive text uses a concise writing style to present students with the basic principles behind the interaction of matter and energy as well as thorough coverage of physics, chemistry, astronomy, and earth sciences. No background knowledge in science is required for students using this textbook thanks to the in-depth descriptions of concepts without the confusion of difficult jargon. Multiple effective text features are boasted in this book including chapter summaries, key terms, as well as multiple-choice and critical thinking questions which challenge students to apply the concepts as they learn them. Physical Science is strategically organized by Bill Tillery across 24 chapters and divided among the different branches of physical science. The book begins with a chapter devoted to answering the question 'What Is Science?' then delves into concepts under the umbrella of physics. These chapters present information on such topics as motion, energy, heat and temperature, wave motions and sound, electricity, and light. The next discipline addressed is that of Chemistry with chapters investigating atoms and periodic properties, chemical bonds, chemical reactions, water and solutions, organic chemistry, and nuclear reactions. A section devoted to astronomy takes a look at the universe, the solar system, as well as Earth in space. This textbook is concluded with concepts surrounding Earth science. These topics include rocks and minerals, plate tectonics, building and shaping Earth's surface, geologic time, atmosphere of Earth, weather and climate, and finally, Earth's water.
