4.0 out of 5 stars 17 Equations, 6 Feb 2013
Really great and interesting book, that inspired me to start learning calculus properly. Strongly recommended to any science fan, as it has a fascinating exploration of some really important science (and maths).

I would have given it five stars had the Schrödinger and the entropy chapters not been so unusually poor and misleading. Theyre probably not worth reading, especially the Quantum Mechanics one, but they're definitely worth learning about elsewhere.
