Summary: "This is an interesting book containing topics not explained in common physics textbooks." Kecheng Qin, Peking University ". the work of a pair of great physicists and top teachers. clear and imaginative. I cannot remember an occasion where a student complained about this text." Francis Halzen, Professor of Physics, University of Wisconsin, Madison "The authors quite skillfully describe wave behavior without using much space. The section on color is so good that it alone makes the book a worthwhile purchase for the general public; certainly the section is a plus for those considering the book for a class." Eric Heller, Harvard University, from the book review in Physics Today, March 2009. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0123918782
