Summary

PHYSICS: A CONCEPTUAL WORLD VIEW provides an engaging and effective introduction to physics through an ongoing storyline that describes the development of the current physics "world view." This story provides readers with a clear understanding of the laws of nature and the context to fully appreciate the importance of physics. The book's appealing style and minimal use of math also help to make complex material interesting and easy to grasp, even for readers intimidated by physics or math. In addition, the new Seventh Edition includes a thoroughly revised art program featuring elements such as balloon captions and numerous illustrations to help readers better visualize key concepts. In this remarkable book, the authors masterfully translate the logic, vocabulary, and values of physics into a compelling narrative that general readers can readily understand and enjoy.
