this book was published in 1952, it is a super reference book
that is clear enough to interest my bright 7 year old. I fre-
quently use it to refresh my memory of the fundamentals of
He has had this book since he was a kid, and I have found it VERY helpful to my own understanding of physics.
In reading this book, I have come to understand that the science classes I took skipped really basic stuff, which left me dazed and confused. This book is helping to un-confuse me!
It starts with the most basic of scientific principals - matter and measurement. Did you know that the standard yard is the distance between two scratches on a metal bar kept by the English govenment?
This might seem trivial - but I realized I had never considered that there would need to be some standard that could ALWAYS be referred back to.
Of course the book covers motion, levers, gravity, electricity, and light. Each subject is broken up into small sections that make the information easy to digest.
If you can get your hands on this book, I do recommend it - whether you're a scientist or not!
