Fantastic physics book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The New World of Mr Tompkins: George Gamow's Classic Mr Tompkins in Paperback (Paperback)
As a physics student studying my A levels, I found this book extremely helpful.
It allows the reader to understand difficult and advanced concepts in physics.
Gamow uses his imagination to help us understand it for example 'what if speed of light was 30mph' and he then explores a world with such limitations and shows how special relativity works.
There are many other concepts explored, like entropy, gravity, etc etc
A great book for people interested in physics!
Easy to understand and fun.
