Book Synopsis

If you think a negative charge is something that shows up on your credit card bill — if you imagine that Ohm's Law dictates how long to meditate — if you believe that Newtonian mechanics will fix your car — you need The Cartoon Guide to Physics to set you straight.

You don't have to be a scientist to grasp these and many other complex ideas, because The Cartoon Guide to Physics explains them all: velocity, acceleration, explosions, electricity and magnetism, circuits — even a taste of relativity theory — and much more, in simple, clear, and, yes, funny illustrations. Physics will never be the same!
