He was really happy when he got this book and he carried this book around for months, reading it. I liked that concepts I'd never been able to grasp before were explained in a way that I could understand with a cartoon drawing to help make it more clear. This dog-eared book has finally been put on the bookshelf, but I expect he'll pull it out to read it one more time again before too long.
Since he was 8 years old when he got this we didn't focus on the mathematical equations related to the physics concepts much, although we did talk through many of them when reading together. Also, just because it has cartoons doesn't mean it was written for children.
This isn't a little kid's book and some of the reviewers seemed disappointed by that fact - but that is exactly why I bought it. These series of cartoon books are amazing.
I got the cartoon guide to chemistry a few years ago. I have been able to explain very complex topics with it as an introduction to them. I loved it so much I wanted to get this one Physics for my tutoring business. As amazing as the chemistry one. I highly recommend it for kids and college students in their firsts years, who want a more friendly approach to hard subjects like algebra, calculus, chemistry and physics.
Love it. Outside of Larry Gonick's excellent "Cartoon History of the Universe" series, this is the best of his books that I have read. There are two sections in the book: The first section deals with motion, forces, Newton's Laws, Energy, and associated topics.
The second section deals with electricity and electrical fields, and magnets and magnetic fields. It also touches on relativity and quantum electrodynamics.
They do not cover topics such as String Theory or Chaos Theory, which have become increasingly more publicized since this book was published.
This book works well as an introduction to the topic, or as a refresher. There is not enough substance for this to serve as a text book, nor do they provide a bibliography to assist the reader in finding more in depth books on any of the topics.
However, Gonick does a wonderful job of blending the history of the field with the topics that are covered, and he does so in a way which does not overwhelm the reader. I bought the book 10 years ago, but just now I have been through reading it for the second time, as a relaxation between the daily harder works, and refreshing what once leaned in school, and I must say that again it was delightful to read in the book. Among other, concerning the book, I should think that it must be a good book to use by persons who not quite are having sense for of physics, and then else only are having the standard drier physics book.
