5.0 out of 5 stars Great guide for beginners/intermediate learners, April 23, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Manga Guide to Physics (Paperback)
When I was a college student I read the Manga Guide to Databases for funsies. Since then I own almost every Manga Guide that have ever been published.

They are written much like an edutainment tv show, with simplistic story/characters to put more emphasis on the lessons. Each book typically follows a young, school aged boy or girl. Be warned if your teen think they're "too cool for school" or "too old for comics", they probably will not think kindly of this gift.

The concepts are understandable within the comic in most cases. If not, each chapter ends with a text-only lesson guide that summarizes. Often the text goes into greater depth/detail than the comic itself.

Physics itself requires a certain level of prior mathematical understanding (around Pre-Calculus or above). I would recommend this for high school level or above. Even better is if the reader is taking physics that year, it can supplement their learning. I never had the opportunity to take Physics until college, but even still I found the class and the book enjoyable.
