The Instant Physicist
An Illustrated Guide
Illustrated by Joey Manfre
Best-selling author Richard A. Muller enlightens us on such questions as whether wine really is radioactive or organic foods have more poison in them than those grown with pesticides.
In Physics for Future Presidents Muller demonstrated that he has a unique talent for delivering the "aha" moment—making difficult topics accessible. He also displayed his ability to entertain, too, by presenting the best of the scientific curiosities he has assembled over his distinguished career. Assisted by Joey Manfre, who has created an original colour cartoon for each "physics bite", Muller will have readers chuckling while they’re absorbing more science than they ever thought possible. From the surprising (chocolate has more energy in it than TNT) to the scary (even children can make a bomb), this book contains a revelation on every page.
"This is a gem of a book.."
