The Cartoon Guide to Physicsby Larry Gonick
Synopses & Reviews
If you think a negative charge is something that shows up on your credit card bill — if you imagine that Ohm's Law dictates how long to meditate — if you believe that Newtonian mechanics will fix your car — you need The Cartoon Guide to Physics to set you straight.
You don't have to be a scientist to grasp these and many other complex ideas, because The Cartoon Guide to Physics explains them all: velocity, acceleration, explosions, electricity and magnetism, circuits — even a taste of relativity theory — and much more, in simple, clear, and, yes, funny illustrations. Physics will never be the same!
From the author of the bestselling The Cartoon History of the Universe--a refreshingly humorous and effective cartoon explanation of the principles of physics.
