Product description

Review

A delightful book on the joys and universality of physics. Czerski brings our humdrum everyday world to life, showing us that it is just as fascinating as anything that can be seen by the Hubble Telescope or created at the large Hadron Collider.--Jim Al-Khalili, author of Life on the Edge

Helen Czerski's engaging debut book seeks to demystify physics in everyday life, so whether you know your refraction from your reflection, or find the entire subject incomprehensible, this should be an invaluable primer.

Excellent... an ideal gift for any scientifically inquisitive person, including children or adults who retain a child's sense of wonder. Robert Hooke would have loved it.--John Gribbin

In an age when any questions we have about the workings of the world are instantly answerable via Google, physicist Czerski pushes us to resist the search engine.... [W]hy not learn some simple physics so that you can try to puzzle things out for yourself?

Storm in a Teacup is a course in physics, but it's less like a classroom than a long walk with a patient, charming, and very, very learned friend. Czerski has a remarkable knack for finding scientific wonders under every rock, alongside every raindrop, and inside every grain of sand. --Jordan Ellenberg, author of How Not to Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking

This book is charming, accessible and enthusiastic. Helen invites you in to see the world through her eyes and understand how a physicist think. It's a wonderful way to discover the hidden scientific connections behind the ordinary and everyday.--Hannah Fry, author of Hello World

About the Author

Helen Czerski is a physicist at University College London's Department of Mechanical Engineering, and a science presenter for BBC. She writes a monthly column for BBC Focus magazine called "Everyday Science" that was shortlisted for a Professional Publishers Association award.
