Product description

Review

"A wonderland not only for the scientific mind, but also the creative one." -- David Gruber, author of Aglow in the Dark

From the Inside Flap

"The main objective of Physics for Entertainment is to arouse the activity of scientific imagination, to teach the reader to think in the spirit of science and to create in his mind a wide variety of associations."
--Yakov Perelman

Ask most people what they think about physics, and you'll likely get a shrug or a scowl. But hand someone a copy of Physics for Entertainment, and you'll get a smile.

Written in the early days of the Soviet Union, Physics for Entertainment is filled with easy-to-understand explanations of the essential laws of the universe, which Perelman sets up with questions such as:

Can an invisible man see?

Why does a microscope magnify?

Why do knots hold?

Why does a rocket go up?

What would happen if the speed of sound was slower?

Why do fish have bladders?

What is the safest way to jump from a moving car?

Perelman also uses examples from authors such as Mark Twain, Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, and Charles Darwin to illustrate the otherwise obtuse principles of physics.

Both instructive and witty, this book explores ordinary facts and phenomenon from a physics perspective, encouraging readers to think in scientific terms.

Physics for Entertainment is just as unique and diverting--and educational--as it was seventy years ago, when it first became a bestseller in the Soviet Union.
