The Physics Devotional
Celebrating the Wisdom and Beauty of PhysicsBook - 2015
Since 1960 the universe has taken on a wholly new face. It has become more exciting, more mysterious, more violent, and more extreme as our knowledge concerning it has suddenly expanded. And the most exciting, most mysterious, most violent, and most extreme phenomena of all has the simplest, plainest, calmest, and mildest name-nothing more than a black hole. --Isaac Asimov, The Collapsing Universe, 1977From Clifford Pickover--the ingenious author of the phenomenally successful The Math Book and The Physics Book --comes an inspirational volume that celebrates the beauty and wisdom of physics. This gorgeous compendium features a physics quotation and stunning art on every page, along with biographical facts and birthdays of notable physicists like Christiaan Huygens, Niels Bohr, Enrico Fermi, Richard Feynman, and Max Planck. Attractive and thought provoking, The Physics Devotional makes a wonderful gift for science and math enthusiasts.
