THINKING PHYSICS is the CLASSIC COMICS of CLASSICAL PHYSICS. Without the Mickey Mouse Stuff. It is chuck full of Ideas, Diagrams,and Illustrations. In real life a question about Physics occurs to a child or a Scientist and later, if ever,the child or Scientist finds the answer. In School Life you're taught the answers, and the question, the Exam, comes later. In THINKING PHYSICS, as in real Life,the Question comes first. And when the answer comes, it cuts directly to the problem's bottom line. There is an easy way to explain anything - its just hard to find. THINKING PHYSICS is a collection of what Lewis Epstein has found - illustated with a picture or two on every page. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Should be forced on every high school student 22. September 2009
Von Brian Jo - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Every so often I pick up a book that I wish I read 10 years ago. Feynman's Lectures on Physics and Van Hess's Thermodynamics are among these, as well as Polya's How To Solve It for those more mathematically inclined. These would have certainly saved me from much confusion during my college engineering curriculum, for they focus on teaching the material to the reader, as opposed to masking it in the equations of a textbook. Some lucky folks have the ability to glance at equations and immediately grasp their meaning; for the other 99.99% of us, an intuitive explanation replete with real-world analogies helps to bring the meaning to life.

With a presentation both unique and entertaining, Lewis Carroll Epstein's Thinking Physics has certainly claimed a rightful seat at the roundtable of wonderful didactic books. Every page poses a question that challenges the reader on his view of the physical world, and nearly every answer tears down the fallacies of his intuition. Socrates would have been proud of the format, with each new question expanding on concepts developed in earlier answers. One of the 1-star reviews mentioned a lack of organization. This criticism completely misses the point. It is NOT a textbook, so "obviously" it will lack some of the rigorous development of concepts and precise organization that you would expect in a physics text. It IS a popular physics book with lots of cartoony pictures that a kid in elementary school could both enjoy and understand. At the same time, the insights will help build anyone's physics intuition, regardless of age. I read this book when I was 30. I have since started going through problems in Kleppner and Kolenkow and some other more advanced texts, and I really think this book helped.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Please Please Please publish this title in a Kindle edition too! 10. April 2013
Von Meredith - Veröffentlicht auf
I love this book. I bought this book in 2002 and it has been wonderful, useful, entertaining and worth every penny. At first I used it as a way to prep myself during my internship teaching high school physics. Now I have a 7 year old and a 9 year old, and I use this book to help me explain the world around us. Sadly (or wonderfully) I want to reference this book more frequently that I remember to bring it with me. Although I love the printed version, I need a kindle version too, :), and I would gladly pay the original cover price all over again...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Thought Experiments in Physics 6. Februar 2008
Von Frank Jung - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book by Epstein is one of my better investments for secondary school (or undergraduate/graduate) physics books. Although I do not use it as a text, I have taken advantage of the problems posed within as warm-up questions to engage the students on the topics at hand(in addition to the hands-on demonstrations.) My students can really get fired up by some of the classical problems and the illustrations that accompany every questions within. The answer keys are highly intelligible as well as entertaining.

However, do not underestimate the questions as merely for the beginning students of physics: they are far from that realm. Some of the questions are challenging enough even for the professional physicists, and in fact even for Newton himself.

If you are intrigue, go buy it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Elegant, brilliant answers 15. September 2005
Von Ken Braithwaite - Veröffentlicht auf
Epstein presents a bunch of physics problems, and solves them all -- almost without any math -- with clear, insightful, elegant solutions. A brilliant book useful from grade 10 to grad school.

5.0 von 5 Sternen best book on earth 15. Oktober 2012
Von queenidog - Veröffentlicht auf
I read this book twice...or maybe 3 times. It is the greatest book I have ever read and the best book on explaining physics. It is the only one of over 200 physics books in my library that I did NOT give away! Why? Because I have to read it again and this time not cheat on the questions.
