The Guru’s Guide to the Universe is written for anyone with a keen interest in understanding applied physical science. It is a richly illustrated text, utilizing a lighthearted style to convey the qualitative and quantitative essence of the subject matter. The Guru will tell you a fantastic story, stranger than any fiction, and when it is done, not only will you understand how things work, you will have gained an enlightening background proficiency in physical science, that you can enjoy and apply in everyday life. Think of it as a science fiction novel – minus the ‘fiction’ part. The Guru’s Guide to the Universe provides a thorough treatment on the universality of physical science, while not burying the reader in rigorous and complex mathematics. This book is written for anyone with a keen interest in learning applied physics. The only real prerequisites for the Guru’s course on physics is that you know how to read and have an imagination and curiosity about the unknown. Ideal applications for the Guru’s Guide to the Universe would include an entertaining brush-up and reference for individuals interested in improving or refreshing their understanding of the topic, an introductory or supplemental book for freshman/sophomore college students having to take their ‘dreaded’ physical science courses, or even as a high school primer on physics.

About the Author:

The ‘Guru’ is in real-life Dr. Rick Tavares. Although he looks nothing like the guru professor who will guide you through this book, Dr. Tavares’ role is to animate this enthusiastic scientist character on your exploration through the universe. Dr. Tavares has a Bachelor of Science degree in aerospace engineering, Master of Science degrees in mechanical engineering and structural engineering, and a Doctorate in civil engineering. As an engineer and a scientific consultant, he has made it his business to solve the world’s problems using applied physics, and has taught numerous engineering courses at the university level. All of this knowledge has been imparted to our cartoon professor friend, so you are in good hands with the Guru. In researching the Guru’s Guide to the Universe, Dr. Tavares combed through dozens of physics, mechanics, optics, thermodynamics, fluid and solid mechanics, astrodynamics, and college level mathematics books in his personal library, searching for the unifying theme that holds these seemingly diverse topics together. The result is The Guru's Guide to the Universe, a summary and introduction of the notable aspects of modern physics gleaned from his more than 20 years of work in the field.
