`The Big Questions: Physics' is a A5 sized hardback book that explores twenty of the most intriguing questions about physics. Each question is approximately ten pages long and explains the basic concepts of physics in a relatively clear and erudite way. Topics covered include What is Time?, What Happened to Schrödinger's Cat?, What is the God Particle?, Why Does E=MC2?, Is String Theory Really About Strings? And more besides. There are various quotes smattered throughout, as well as diagrams to illustrate and clarify the more complex ideas. This is a good introduction to what can be a rather daunting subject and offers an easy way to engage with core ideas that affect us all. This book has a rubber band incorporated into the cover, like those found on stationary notebooks, which can be used as a bookmark and makes for a nice touch. All in all this is an interesting and thought provoking book that should stand you in good stead in understanding those key physic concepts that have always eluded you up until now.
