Is there always a relationship between cause and effect, or do some things "just happen? Here are seven of the most important ideas in physics--ideas that shattered the assumptions of dogmatists, philosophers and scientists--explained simply and elegantly.
And you don't need a background in mathematics or science to enjoy this fascinating book. Seven Ideas That Shook the Universe explores the history of seven important themes in physics: Copernican astronomy, Newtonian mechanics, energy and entropy, relativity, quantum theory, and conservation principles and symmetries.
Together these discoveries form the foundation of our understanding of the physical world. Nathan Spielberg and Bryon Anderson explain each concept in a simple, straightforward narrative style, considering each in the context of its times and assessing its impact on the way we think about time, space, matter, even existence itself. For the science lover and the intellectually curious, Seven Ideas That Shook the Universe brings the drama of scientific discovery to vivid life. Read more Read less.

This book changed my mind. It is a very well written overview of 7 huge contributions to science in the field of physics that essentially changed the world.
Don't worry, some of the math is there in case you really want it, but it is not a necessity for understanding the concepts of Copernican astronomy, Newtonian physics, energy, entropy and probability, the Theory of Relativity, Quantum Theory, or conservation principles.
Bought for college. Great physics text, very comprehensive subject matter. Bought as a textbook for an intro physics class. It is hard for me to understand physics but this book made it very clear.
The material was easy to read if you take your time. Served my purpose and the cost was minimal as opposed to the full price purchase which was in additional was very convenient to have it delivered to my door. Thank you Amazon! Go to Amazon.
