Description
Why don't heavier objects fall faster? Why do we feel as though we have more energy when we're sitting upstairs? Is time travel possible? And what happened to the poor cat in Schrödinger's famous thought experiment? Although he abandoned the pursuit of physics for that of philosophy at Cambridge (largely because it had no tricky maths, he confesses), Jeff Stewart gives us an irreverent, surprisingly accessible look at the fascinating, awe-inspiring, and at times downright weird world of physics (published in Britain as Why Balloons Rise and Apples Fall). From basic explorations of motion and force, work and energy, matter and heat, and electricity and magnetism, Stewart moves into more thought-provoking and complex questions of relativity, quantum physics, and astrophysics—and can't resist exploring the exciting philosophical questions that arise out of these subjects.

"At just the right level for the beginner he runs us through all the classical physics that no one bothers with, yet is at the heart of everyday life."—PopularScience.co.uk
