I admit I bought this on a whim, but...
its great... I personally struggle with written physics because i'm a practical kinda guy and I often struggle to understand something unless its well justified.
This book goes about explaining a question in a very interesting way - each question is answered in the form of a series of tweets (140 characters), each tweet (sentence) is precise, well considered and only those words which add meaning or help explain are included. You can tell there's been a lot of thought into how a question is answered.
Why is the Sky Blue,
Why is the Sun Hot?
Why is Mars Red?
What are stars?
What are galaxies?
How fast is the universe expanding?
I really like this approach, very easy to read and interesting. Great approach, definitely recommended ..
