9780449906972: Instant Physics: From Aristotle to Einstein, and Beyond

For all of you who break out in a sweat at the thought of thermodynamics, or freeze up at the mention of quantum mechanics, like a bolt from the blue, INSTANT PHYSICS will zap you through the fascinating history of our most basic, yet baffling, science.
From the thousand-year search for proof of the existence of the ever-elusive atom to the varied and heated arguments behind the big bang theory, INSTANT PHYSICS answers all the heavy questions with a light touch. You'll learn:
* How the Greek philosophers used the sledgehammer of mathematics to break apart the mysteries of the physical universe.
* Why gravity is a "romantic" force.
* How to tell the difference between a gluon, a meson, and a quark, even if you can't see them.
INSTANT PHYSICS is crammed with special features, including chapter summaries, who's who lists, biographical and historical tidbits, and a host of illustrations, photos, equations, diagrams, and drawings.

From the Publisher:

I have no mathematical skills. Well, that's not entirely true: I can add and subtract. I can even divide and multiply a bit. But other than that I am pretty hopeless. So physics is definitely not a part of my daily life in any way, shape, or form.

Now, I work on a lot of Science Fiction books. And occasionally these books bristle with concepts in physics. A lot of the time the physics used does not exist yet in this time and place, but every once and a while there's something that needs to be checked. That's when I go to my reference shelf and dig out a copy of Instant Physics. It's amazing what Rothman can help you understand, even if you only have rudimentary skills in the mathematics department.
