It is years since I read a science book, and I remember when I got to college thinking – this is completely different from what I read at primary school! And it was! Fortunately, Nick Arnold also saw that kids were struggling with todays’s science, so he grossed it up and made it fun.
Physics and Forces were never my thing, but I understand them a lot better now that I have read this delightfully sickening book. Not only does it explain the different types of forces, but it also has quick biographies on some of the well known, and lesser well known scientists who contributed to the laws of physics.
A very useful book if you have teenagers in the house struggling to understand anything science.
