Who knew?

23 Aug

I had no idea that there was so much that went into making seemingly simple things happen every day.  The Physics of Everyday Things was an eye-opening experience for me.  I have what I consider to be a somewhat scientific mind, and yet I was blown away at all of the physics that happen to make an alarm clock work, an elevator take me up, my information to be stored “in the cloud”, or to make my LED television work.  This book, while it does have some very technical language at times, never felt over my head. It was incredibly informative and very interesting.  I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to figure out how and why things work the way they do.
