Summary
If you think the Laws of Motion are only discussed in the local traffic court, or that E=mc[superscript 2] is the name of a rap group, The Pocket Professor: Physics is just the thing to accelerate your learning curve and give you the vocabulary and core knowledge you need to make sense of the rules that govern our universe. You'll learn why Galileo dropped the ball, follow Planck on his quantum leap, and perceive the relative genius of Einstein. Taking you to the eve of the atom's discovery and explaining the seriousness of gravity, this invaluable volume gives you everything you need to better understand the world according to Newton (that's Sir Isaac, not Big Fig)
