  • Graphic design is key in books I ve said it before I ll say it again I picked up this one and its companion Pavlov s Dog in the bargain section at Chapters because, uh, holy shit they re beautiful Every page boasts gorgeous, almost Dadaist collages that relate to whatever experiment is being discussed Sometimes this means reconstructed pictures of the scientist s in question, or artful representations of an apparatus Total eye candy.Total eye candy.Here s the thing about writing about science fo [...]


  • I picked this book up from a table in my brick and mortar bookstore I had no idea what I was getting, but I m a sucker for both Dragons and Schrodinger s Cat What a delight this book was to read The stories range from one to three pages, the shorter ones being in the beginning They also told in chronological order, beginning with Early Experiments 430 BCE AD 1307 and ending with Chapter 6, Across the Universe 1940 2009.I think this is a great overview, and introduction, to science for the non sc [...]


  • Not a bad overview of the history of science well, specifically, physical theory and experiment Major waypoints and ideas are covered in one or two page summaries The author does a decent job, given the design of the book, of connecting the ideas together The major fault, however, is that these ideas lose resonance without extensive connection with other ideas and earlier ideas The book is supposed to be about the path of discovery, but describes the path by showing a picture of individual stepp [...]


  • If you have little or no knowledge of physics, but curious about the evolution of physics, science and technology, this is the right book for you Even a physics dumb like me can easily understand the basics and get to know fundamental scientists who have made breakthroughs throughout history It starts with basic physics optics, atoms, light, air pressure, cloud chambers and ends with complicated phenomena such as quantum theory, supermassive blackholes, Hadron collider and Higg s boson It is im [...]


  • This is great book for everybody Adam Hart Davis sums up some of the most groundbreaking experiments in physics and he explains them so easily that everybody can understand Of course some of the experiments are really hard and you have to reread the chapter to fully understand, but this is amazing book I would definitely recommend it to everybody who is interested in physics but is afraid that he won t understand Trust me, with Adam Hart Davises s explanations you will.


  • This was a perfect beach book for the geek in me Chapters each concerned famous for pocket protected nerds, at least physics experiments dating to the Greeks, B.C to the modern day, and never exceeded 4 pages So, nap if you like My sphincter puckered only when, occasionally, an experiment under discussion veered dangerously close to thermodynamics, my nemesis and only collegiate D.


  • CompNtBkOwn in hardback.FS Physics has a long history indeed it is probably the oldest science LS And above all they have seen evidence for the elusive Higgs boson The LHC has spoken.
