5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant introduction to the laws physics, 25 July 2009
This review is from: 50 Physics Ideas You Really Need to Know (50 Ideas You Really Need to Know series) (Hardcover)
I picked this book up after completing a 6 month course in chemistry as part of a qualification to become a science teacher. Before I start teacher training I will be undergoing a month of physics learning, this book was a preemptive move to get some basics under my belt. I found it incredibly clear and structured in the right way; from the basic concepts of Newtonian physics and moving into discoveries that challenged and progressed these physics, eventually moving into quantum physics. The latter being dealt with in a very understandable manner. This book features useful captions on the scientists that came up with certain rules/concepts, as well as time lines on each page to chronologically place these discoveries.
