    1. If you care about how the world works and don t have occasion to use physics in everyday life, Alasdair C Shaw s Best Bits of Physics is a great way to refresh your physics memory I m into science though I m an artist and writer and I enjoyed this book It is concise and entertaining and provides nice real world examples of principles throughout It is a bit dry, as any book on physics would be, but the author does a good job of keeping things moving along, covering a lot of ground The second half [...]


    2. I ve always found science fascinating everyone has heard of Einstein and Newton and this author introduces us to their work and modern principles of things like gravity, acceleration, heat and mass and travel at the speed of light or faster.As a science fiction fan, I was astonished to discover that there is actually a link between mass and time and space which means that the faster you travel the slower time goes Time space does actually warp Mr Spock That may not be entirely accurate but you [...]


    3. The Best Bits of Physics by Alasdair C Shaw is a concise guide to the theory of physics without all the tedious math equations, and that really says it all I have always loved science but hated the abstractness of math formulas Physics has a reputation as a science for the brilliant, but it influences everything of the common man, such as sailing, driving, flying and racing into space to constructing skyscrapers and surviving natural disasters I found The Best Bits of Physics by Alasdair C Shaw [...]


    4. I think Alasdair does a great job of summarizing these complex theories, especially considering the amount of pages he s chosen to fill out I would recommend this to anyone who has no understanding or background in physics to help begin building a foundation.


    5. I liked it It s split into two halves that don t seem to have anything to do with one another Half 1 is a short breeze through major concepts in physics Half 2 is a list of do it yourself physics experiments Half 1 takes a dozen or so physics concepts like thermodynamics, general relativity, absolute zero, and attempts to distill each to about a page of short, lay explanation This does not succeed, not through any fault in the writer, but because it is an impossible task I am well read in these [...]
