Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Fear of Physics is a lively, irreverent, and informative look at everything from the physics of boiling water to cutting-edge research at the observable limits of the universe. Rich with anecdotes and accessible examples, it nimbly ranges over the tools and thought behind the world of modern physics, taking the mystery out of what is essentially a very human intellectual endeavor.
From The Publisher*A cult classic-one of the first books to make the way physicists think about the world accessible to the general reader-now fully updated to keep pace with modern science
