"AT 71, PHYSICS PROFESSOR IS A WEB STAR" trumpeted a front-page New York Times article about M.I.T. professor Walter Lewin. Already a local legend in Cambridge, the Dutch-born physicist became an internet sensation when the school put his lectures up on their Open Course website. For Dr. Lewin, there is no mystery is about his winning approach: "Clarity is the word.... What really counts is to make them love physics, to make them love science." In that spirit, For the Love of Physics is a delightfully reader-friendly tutorial on the joys of science disguised as an autobiography. This lively exposition helps explain why fans (including Bill Gates) find Lewin's lectures so stimulating. A natural for readers of Richard Feynman and Michio Kaku.
