9780064636186: Cartoon Guide to Physics

Famed cartoonist Larry Gonick makes learning physics a blast with this animated, video-enhanced romp through Motion, Projectiles, Energy and much more. Hands-on workshops teach you about Inertia, Collisions, and Acceleration. A-Z or topical Glossary-hopping explains unfamiliar terms. A timeline of history's great scientists shows how our understanding of physics unfolded.

Review:

It's been said that before physics students can fly with Feynman they need to walk with Halliday and Resnick. Those of us who are still toddling along, however, need Larry Gonick. Gonick's characteristically quirky drawings are teamed with physicist Art Huffman's prose to produce lessons like this: picture Sir Isaac Newton driving a Mack truck labeled "Big Inertia." Ike is talking into a CB radio, saying: "Breaker one nine: force overcomes inertia and produces acceleration. Do you read?" As the jacket copy says, "If you think a negative charge is something that shows up on your credit-card bill--if you imagine that Ohm's law dictates how long to meditate--if you believe that Newtonian mechanics will fix your car," here's the book for you. --Mary Ellen Curtin
