Physics is the science that ties together all others, aiming to explain the universe from the smallest subatomic particles to vast galaxies.

How the World Works: Physics is a wonderful introduction to the history and development of this dynamic discipline, from the natural philosophers of the ancient world to cutting-edge experiments in quantum mechanics. We encounter Isaac Newton poking a needle into his own eye, Albert Einstein paving the way for nuclear weapons, and the ultimate puzzle of dark matter.

This book includes:
- Accessible explanations of key concepts and principles, including optics and quantum mechanics
- Profiles of famous and lesser-known physicists, including Galileo, Erwin Shr�dinger and George Gamow
- Useful diagrams to accompany complex theorems
- Insights into the future of physics
