Physics for Men: The Science Behind Being a Guy

Overview

You think a real guy leaves everything up to chance? Don't count on it. It might seem like his every action is unplanned and unintentional, but that's not the case. Everything he does—from firing up the grill to avoiding taking out the trash—is thoroughly calculated before he does it. It's not rocket science. It's guy physics.

Overview

You think a real guy leaves everything up to chance? Don't count on it. It might seem like his every action is unplanned and unintentional, but that's not the case. Everything he does—from firing up the grill to avoiding taking out the trash—is thoroughly calculated before he does it. It's not rocket science. It's guy physics.

This isn't the kind of physics they tried to teach you in school. While it does deal with velocity and force and all that good stuff, you can apply it in real life and really reap the rewards. Use it to beat your buddies on the court. Or you can use it to get out of your chores. It even comes in handy when you're working an angle at the bar.

This guide proves a guy in motion will stay in motion—as long as that motion is toward a recliner and with a beer.

As a kid, P. R. Kelt got a huge magnifying glass for his birthday and promptly set the yard on fire. He has been a physicist for the past ten years and a guy all his life. A PhD candidate, he thinks about the intricacies of quantum coherence as he scales 50-foot cliffs, rides backcountry, and teaches salsa.
