Kurzbeschreibung

1. August 2011
In For the Love of Physics, beloved MIT professor Walter Lewin, whose riveting physics lectures made him a YouTube super-star, takes readers on a remarkably fun, inventive, and often wacky journey that brings the joys of physics to life.

For the Love of Physics captures Walter Lewin’s extraordinary intellect, passion for physics, and brilliance as a teacher”—Bill Gates.

For more than thirty years as a renowned professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Lewin’s lectures made physics not only accessible but fun, whether putting his head in the path of a wrecking ball, supercharging himself with three hundred thousand volts of electricity, or demonstrating why the sky is blue and clouds are white. In For the Love of Physics, Lewin takes readers on a marvelous journey, opening our eyes as never before to the wonders of physics and its amazing ability to reveal the beauty and power embedded in our world.

Could it be true that we are shorter standing up than lying down? Why can we snorkel no deeper than about one foot below the surface? Why are the colors of a rainbow always in the same order, can we stretch a hand out and touch one?

Using superbly clear and simple explanations of phenomena we’ve always wondered about, such as what the big bang would have sounded like had anyone existed to hear it, Lewin surprises and delights with physics-based answers to even the most elusive questions.

Whether showing us that a flea is strong enough to pull a heavy book across a table, or describing the coolest, weirdest facts about the tiniest bits of matter, Lewin always entertains as he edifies. “For me,” Lewin writes, “physics is a way of seeing—the spectacular and the mundane, the immense and the minute—as a beautiful, thrillingly interwoven whole.” For the Love of Physics is a rare gem that will change the way readers see the world.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Physik als Erlebnis 8. August 2012
Von UWeiß
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
(FOR THE LOVE OF PHYSICS: FROM THE END OF THE RAINBOW TO THE EDGE OF TIME: A JOURNEY THROUGH THE WONDERS OF PHYSICS ) By Lewin, Walter (Author) Hardcover Published on (05, 2011)

Walter Lewin's "For the Love of Physics" ist der Originaltitel der von mir zuvor erworbenen deutschen Übersetzung mit dem (meines Erachtens) wenig treffenden Titels "Es funktioniert". Schon die deutsche Ausgabe hat mich so fasziniert, dass ich mir nach der Lektüre das englische Original bei Amazon bestellt habe.
Fundamentale Gesetzmäßigkeiten der Physik und die Entwicklung der Radio-Astronomie werden leicht verständlich und so spannend dargestellt, dass man immer wieder von den häufig angebotenen Web-Links zu den entsprechenden Videovorlesungen des MIT-Professors Gebrauch macht.
Wie von Lewin vorausgesagt, hat sich nach der Lektüre des Kapitels über den Regenbogen mein Leben verändert. In der Tat verpasse ich nunmehr keine Gelegenheit, dem großartigen Farbenspiel der Lichtbrechung in der Natur nachzujagen, nicht nur bei Sonnenschein und Regen.
Wer auch nur ein wenig Interesse für die Physik aufbringt sollte dieses Buch unbedingt lesen und dabei verstehen, warum für Walter Lewin die Physik ebenso sehr eine Liebesgeschichte wie eine Wissenschaft ist. "For the Love of Physics" charakterisiert das Buch viel treffender als das nüchterne "Es funktioniert" der deutschen Übersetzung.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Rock Star 4. Mai 2011
Von Chris Reich - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
If physics has rock stars, Walter Lewin is one. If physicist rock stars can have groupies, I confess to being one.

As I read the publisher's text about the book, I felt a little blush. Could that refer to me?! Truly, Walter Lewin's online lectures changed MY life. Sounds silly? Well it's true. Not only did I get very interested in a subject I thought out of my grasp, but I continued my education in physics. I "discovered" a lot of application of physics to my business practice. To shorten the story, I use physics in my business and my clients have benefited greatly and my career has blasted off.

Now, the book is like listening to Dr. Lewin talk. For a fan, what could be better? The videos of his lectures might be better but they are very math intense. The book is light on the math. That's good.

I do wish the book had more than than the too brief picture collection about 2/3'ds through. I would like some illustrations to go with the topical discussions. Still, overall, I love the book but that's because I see Dr. Lewin as a sort of virtual mentor. I could never afford MIT or qualify to get in to MIT. Dr. Lein's lectures opened MIT to me.

So a physics fan, and especially a Walter Lewin fan, will love the book. I hope every one of his students will buy two copies (I did)---cherish one and give the other away. Your gift may inspire the next Einstein (male or female).

The only negative? That beautiful Dutch accent, which lends itself to physics, doesn't come through in print.

Great read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Viewing the World of Physics with Wonderment 1. Juni 2011
Von G. Poirier - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have very little doubt that any university freshman who has had Professor Lewin for any physics courses will never forget the experience. Why? The book's cover says it all. In the first 69% or so of the book, Professor Lewin discusses basic physics - touching upon various topics such as Newton's Laws, gravity, optics, sound, electricity, etc. The physics is very elementary such that a science buff is not likely to learn anything new here. But the highlight of these discussions is the joy of discovery that they impart to the reader. The author's enthusiasm and amazement for his subject matter is truly exceptional. Throughout, he describes various demonstrations that he's done in class in order to illustrate some particular points - and relishes his students' reactions. He goes out of his way to ensure that the students have fun and will remember what they've seen. Also located in the earlier part of the book is a bit of autobiographical information: mainly Professors Lewin's childhood in his native Holland during World War II and how difficult and horribly tragic life was at that time.

In the next few chapters, comprising about 27% of the book, Professor Lewin discusses his professional life and achievements in x-ray astronomy. This was a treat for me because, once again, his enthusiasm does not cease to grace every page and the details that he provides were mostly new to me. Finally, in the last chapter, he discusses mainly his love for modern art.

Written in clear, very friendly and lively prose, this book should be of particular interest as much to high school students and university freshmen for the clear information that it contains as to the seasoned science buff for the way it is expressed and for the information on the discovery and evolution of x-ray astronomy. If all science classes were taught like Professor Lewin teaches his physics classes, there would probably be more scientists in the world.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Two good books, but who will want to read both? 11. Juli 2011
Von J. Seigle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a well-written book to whet your appetite for physics, if you know nothing at all about physics yet have a burning desire to learn about X-ray astronomy. I would think that narrows the audience a bit.

Physics was my favorite subject in college, and I have continued to read books for the layperson (Hawking, Greene, Kaku, etc.). Those authors have a way of explaining new leading developments in modern physics in a way that speaks to the non-scientist. Lewin has a way of explaining basic, established Newtonian physics that is easy to understand but won't appeal to many of us who have had a college course or two in general physics, or even a really good high school physics course. The best audience might be high school students who are about to take their first physics course.

This first part of the book takes on a conversational tone, talking down a bit, taking pains to reach us on our own level, almost like Mister Rogers if he had taught physics. ("See how revealing good measurements can be?")

The first two-thirds of the book covers a range of interesting topics, although I think that one of the author's favorite topics is himself and his wonderful teaching style. He has received countless accolades for his classroom presentation, and cares about teaching a lot more than many physics professors who phone in their lectures while focused on research, so he deserves credit. But he really wants us to know that he is able to get his students to roar with laughter, or shriek in delight--"The students' eyes widen....As you may imagine, it's really very dramatic and my students are always quite shocked."

The oddest thing about this book is the bulk of it talks about fundamental physics, but then he launches into a long section on his own research into X-ray astronomy, his various misadventures in launching and tracking observational balloons, and his important discoveries. This second section takes on a completely different tone, with more advanced subject matter, and seems aimed a different audience than the first part.

This is a very accessible book for general audiences but depending on your interests and background you will probably just skim over one half or the other.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A joy to read 30. Mai 2011
Von F. Baker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
What a marvelous book. Dr. Lewin presents physics in an enlightening and entertaining way that is a joy to read. No heavy math, just physics principles.

But (side note and not to discourage you from reading this marvelous book), if you want to truly see physics in all its glory go to the MIT website and search for "8.01 Physics I: Classical Mechanics" a video on-line course that Dr. Lewin taught in 1999. In the video course Dr. Lewin shows how physics is supposed to be taught. Do you remember high school physics or maybe an entry level college physics course and all the dry mathematical formulas that were presented with no rhyme or reason. Dr. Lewin develops the formulas and actually shows that they do what they purport to do. Warning: The course is calculus based and heavy on the math, but still a joy to watch.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The superlative, amazing sharing of knowledge and the beauty of Physics 10. Mai 2011
Von Anne M. Bacchiocchi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
If you have not yet read For The Love Of Physics, I highly recomend that you do so. Please do not miss out on such an opertunity as to own and read this book written by the legendary Walter Lewin.

The book is so wonderfully written, Walter captured my attention from the very firs word and right straight through each chaper and to the end of the book. I loved it so much.

What a fabulous experience and oppertunity to see the world in a new way, and see all the beauty of the Physics behind it. Walter Lewin has proven that Physics does work and makes reading about it so enjoyable.

I have been a fan for several years now,and have seen all his lectures, and I will personally treasure this book, I love it. Walter Lewin really excells in this book, showing his love for Physics and Art, it is a real eye-opener.

I know that you all will enjoy reading For The Love Of Physics, I know I did.

Anne M. Bacchiocchi
