Summary

Following the hugely successful The Science Bookand The Math Bookcomes a richly illustrated chronology of physics, containing 250 short, entertaining, and thought-provoking entries. In addition to exploring such engaging topics as dark energy, parallel universes, the Doppler effect, the God particle, and Maxwell's demon, the book's timeline extends back billions of years to the hypothetical Big Bang and forward trillions of years to a time of "quantum resurrection." Like the previous titles in this series, The Physics Bookhelps readers gain an understanding of major concepts without getting bogged down in complex details.
