Broken into many short sections and peppered with Epstein's own playful hand-drawn illustrations, the book does not simply give the right answer: It also goes into the answers that seem right but are wrong and shows why they are wrong a rarity in science books.Thinking Physicsis a rigorously correct, lighthearted, and cleverly designed Q and A book for physicists of all ages.Epstein, Lewis is the author of 'Thinking Physics Is Gedanken Physics', published 2002 under ISBN 9780935218084 and ISBN 0935218084.
