    1. Tedioso, demasiado lento y engorroso. Buena escritura, pero pierde el impulso de la evolucion historica de los descubrimientos científicos de por ejemplo“Short history of Chemistry” otro mucho mejor libro de Asimov. En el presente libro los datos y fechas parecen estorbar más que hacer la narracion interesante, cosa extraña en los libros de divulgación científica que son los mejores de toda la obra de este autor creo que todo es porque el texto sufre de vejes, de desactualidad en la man [...]


    2. A non-technical history of the key experiments that revealed the crucial steps in photosynthesis. At 62 pp with full-page illustrations, this book is a very quick read.I've only read one of the How Did We Find Out? series, but from Photosynthesis and Dr. Asimov's reputation as a nonfiction writer, it's clear that these books would make an excellent introduction into scientific inquiry for curious pre-teens. Adult readers, however, will likely find this series overly simplistic.


    3. Aburridisimo, sólo lo acabé porque era obligatorio en una materia. Asimov tortura al lector páginas y páginas contando la historia de todos los experimentos, investigadores y elementos relacionados con la fotosíntesis y respiración y pasa todo el libro obsesionado con hacer cálculos a un solo carbono, el horror. Nunca me ha gustado Asimov, ni siquiera cuando escribe ficción; despues de este libro puedo afirmar que nunca volveré a abrir un libro suyo.


    4. The book is categorized as juvenile, however when I read it I was 50 years old with a good grounding in layman's mathematics and science, and I found it fascinating and intellectually challenging. 581.1 Science Fact - An introduction to plant photosynthesis by the master science communicator. Part of his series of Juvenile science books, this one focusing on the history of the discovery of photosynthesis.


    5. Me suelen gustar los libros de divulgación científica y me atraía el tema de la fotosíntesis como proceso clave en la existencia de la vida. Sin embargo, el libro de Asimov me ha parecido extremadamente aburrido y pesado de leer. Lo lamento, poque hacía tiempo que quería leerlo.


    6. Excelente y detallada explicación de este proceso, que sostiene la vida del planeta. Adoré la sencillez y claridad de las explicaciones de cada parte de este complejo proceso, por uno de los más grandes divulgadores de ciencia de la historia.
