Physics for Rock Stars
Making the Laws of the Universe Work for YouBook - 2014
The ultimate guide to understanding the universe. These days, it often seems like there's nothing we can count on. Mechanical engineer and proud science geek Christine McKinley has some good advice- Trust the laws of gravity, motion, energy, and entropy. In this funny, smart, and surprisingly practical book, McKinley offers a guided tour of the physical world, explaining everything from sound and light waves to momentum, buoyancy, magnetism, and relativity - and offers advice on how to use them in our everyday lives and more glamorous pursuits. Whether you're a secret agent trying to cover your tracks, a war correspondent ducking into a bomb shelter, or simply trying to execute the perfect stage dive, understanding physics can mean the difference between life and death (or at least looking kind of silly). Part science book, part memoir, and part extreme survival handbook, Physics for Rock Stars is the amazing science class you never had (or don't remember).
