This month we’ve got another exciting duo of physics books for you to get your teeth into.
First up is The Wonderful World of Relativity; A precise guide for the general reader by Andrew M Steane. The book aims to bring to life Einstein’s theory of relativity for the general reader through illustrations, diagrams and equations – which are carefully explained for a universal audience. The journey starts by introducing space and time and progresses through to special relativity, the twin paradox and several other problems.
We’ve also got Higgs Force; The symmetry-breaking force that makes the world an interesting place. Nicholas Mee tells the human story of the hunt for the Higgs while remaining true to the science. It retells how scientists have produced their modern understanding of the secrets of the Cosmos by unlocking the secrets of matter, while remaining hopeful that the key particle might one day be found.
The Wonderful World of Relativity; A precise guide for the general reader, Andrew M Steane, Oxford University Press, October 2011, £19.99
Higgs Force; The symmetry-breaking force that makes the world an interesting place, Nicholas Mee, The Lutterworth Press, February 2012 £15
