This review is from: How to Destroy the Universe: And 34 Other Really Interesting Uses of Physics (Paperback)
I like many have an amateur interest in physics, and I have to say this book has become one that I repeatedly pick up for a re-read. Parsons effectively mixes popular concepts with complex physical mechanisms which would, in my view, make this book a must for any GCSE or A-Level physics student. He doesn't shy away from complex physical concepts, though clearly this is not a book for the experts. But if you're curious about Einstein's theories of relativity, time dilation, the wackiness of quantum physics and all the rest, you could do much worse than begin with this gem.
