Reader Reviews

What's physics all about?
This book is a fun, interesting way of delving deeper into physics. Its funny pictures and interesting facts make it an easy book to read, and I’d learnt so much by the end of it I didn’t know before! Not only does it tell you about the history of physics and how it works, it also tells you how physics is around in our modern lives today. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and I would definitely recommend it to any budding scientists out there!
