This is not a book designed for a person to just sit down and read There are 250 articles covering different eventstheoriesfindings in the history of Physics Some of the explanations are short ok too short In some cases near the end of the book we are given theories of the end of the universe and its impact on earth the problem being that other events will wipe out the earth before that heat death of core sun expanding etc

Ch engaging topics as dark energy parallel universes the Doppler effect the God particle and Maxwell's demon the book's timeline extends back billions of years to the hypothetical Big Bang and forward trillio. Clifford A Pickover s simply yet aptly titled tome The Physics Book should be on everyone s coffee table regardless of educational level Written by an undeniably accomplished writer and scientist with than forty books a PhD from Yale s Department of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry and over seventy US patents this hefty book not only teaches concepts that have influenced the way in which humans interact with the universe but it also inspires inuiry into science and advocates a concern for science s implications for all aspects of humanityIt is certainly the book for physics because it contains over 200 milestones and curiosities of the physical sciences These ideas span a tremendous breadth from the simplistic truss to the abstractions of chaos theory from 137 billion years ago to over 100 trillion years into the future Pickover condenses each concept or event into a single page accompanied by a visual demonstrating the idea as it works in our world and sometimes our vast universe Although some sections may be too brief to be useful obviously one cannot glean all knowledge about string theory in a page written for the average reader the descriptions still manage to give the reader a better understanding of the applications science has for our existence in the universe Pickover overcomes vagueness and accomplishes inspiration by connecting and contextualizing ideas via See Also suggestions Further he discusses some philosophical components of physics For example the Pre historic Nuclear Reactor and the Baghdad Battery both challenge the reader to uestion humanity s capabilities and metaphysical place in the universe And if a reader s curiosity is sufficiently ignited which I anticipate it will be for many he offers reading that can elaborate on the intricacies of these important milestonesIf you seek a book that will instill in you a working knowledge of physics a book that will allow you to comprehend how the universe works in all its complexity this is not the right text Due to its brevity you should approach this book as a medium between ignorance and understanding It will not fully educate you but it will provide rough foundations and appropriate tools with which you can develop your knowledgeThe only reason I abandoned this book is because I had to return it to the owner before finishing I got about 150 pages through the 450 pages
