Physics for Poets, in its nicknamed meaning, has at its roots the deeper meaning of what some could see as an impossible rendition of what amounts to the deepest possible meaning to a topic seemingly impossible to comprehend. Physics IS poetry, whether you understand it or not. As is well known to those embedded in the search for what may be the impossible, creating a poetic rendition is the attempt to create a deeper meaning to the topic than the mathematical rendition itself. This book, as others prior, and even more current, attempts to create a meaning to the seemingly impossible, and, it DOES just that. Reading it seems to clarify, and at the same time, creates more questions as it attempts to answer others. At this level, quantum physics appears to be an impossible rendition to the basic elements of classical physics, and future attempts to answer those questions that appear to be impossible solution to the questions that have been near impossible to approach. Even when finding an answer to a deeper question, one is left with more questions than answers, yet, the meaning to the answers is where the poetry leaves one at rest; reaching for an answer, unfortunately seems to be an attempt at groping at near-impossible solutions to century old questions. Just knowing that one can identify at least partial answers is rewarding anough, and this book is a leader in finding such answers.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Is physics for poets sufficient to leave the reader satisfied with what he/she has read? I believe so, for truly grasping at the intangible, and opening the doors to such a provoking topic is satisfying, particularly if the reader is willing to accept the near-impossibility of identifying answers that researchers have grasped for at least for two thousand years.
A great read, and a greater insight into what we are surrounded by, at least when identifying that we still cant tell which way is up!
