Thinking about Physics

Thinking about Physics

by Roger G. Newton
     
 

"A significant contribution: clear, concise, and useful. A welcome addition, particularly for its modern flavor and for its writing, which is one of its strongest points. No other book so successfully integrates so much material into such a coherent and readable form."—Gregory Derry, author of What Science Is and How It Works
