Editorial Reviews

Review

"I have been teaching introductory physics for non-science majors for a long time and have never been satisfied with the books on the market. Most of these texts are just watered-down versions of the general physics texts for science students. When I read through [these] three books, I really do get a sense that the authors have attempted to create book[s] that [are] somehow different from the normal algebra problem-based texts. I will be using Questioning the Universe: Concepts in Physics this fall for the science portion of a Science Fiction Learning Community. In the spring, I will be teaching a physics/art history hybrid course and will be using either Superstrings and Other Things: A Guide to Physics, Second Edition or From Atoms to Galaxies: A Conceptual Physics Approach to Scientific Awareness. … both are great books. … I really feel that for conceptual physics courses, CRC Press currently has the three strongest titles. I anticipate a fun teaching experience while using these texts and hope to use them again in the future."
—Steve Zides, Wofford College, Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA

WINNER OF 2009 CHOICE AWARD FOR BEST ACADEMIC TITLE!
"This introductory physics book is quite different (in a positive way) from all of the other similar works this reviewer has seen. In just over 200 pages and 15 chapters, Sadoff delves into just about every area of physics, ranging from basic Newtonian mechanics to fields, light, nuclear physics, relativity, and quantum mechanics … he successfully ties the various subjects together." 
—J.R. Kraus, University of Denver, CHOICE, August 2009, Vol. 46, No. 1

By Stephen Greenberg on November 8, 2012
Format: Paperback
Basically you should not buy this book unless you are taking the "why the sky is blue" course at Cornell University. It does a really poor job of explaining everything and is at least twice as long as it should be. I have no idea how this book won any awards or has any esteem. Basically, I have found the internet to be infinitely more helpful then this book.

There is no such book "Keeper of Lost Causes" by Ahren Sadoff.. The correct title is "Questioning the Universe". Please correct this!!
