As Carl Sagan did for astronomy and Brian Green did for cosmology, Walter Lewin takes listeners on a marvelous journey in For the Love of Physics, opening our eyes as never before to the amazing beauty and power with which physics can reveal the hidden workings of the world all around us. "I introduce people to their own world," writes Lewin, "the world they live in and are familiar with but don't approach like a physicist - yet."

Physics all the way

5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 08-04-13

To be honest I'm not really good with Physics but I was always interested in learning something new or gaining an understanding of how things work.

If you listen to this audio book, it will do exactly do that. It explains "things" in a way even I can understand them. It;s funny and entertaining and I do love the experiments that you can try at home !

Who should listen to this book ?

Well just about everybody - for instance I asked my other half, who studied astro physics to listen to some of it, and he enjoyed it just as much as me.

You can have your children listen to it, since there is so much to discover and maybe even have a parent child competition to try out one of the experiments.

Should you still want more then you could even watch some of it on YouTube where I found

some of the experiments demonstrated.

Go listen and learn - that's my advice !

When Harold Fry nips out one morning to post a letter, leaving his wife hoovering upstairs, he has no idea that he is about to walk from one end of the country to the other. He has no hiking boots or map, let alone a compass, waterproof, or mobile phone. All he knows is that he must keep walking - to save someone else's life.

I'm just about to finish listening to this audio book.

This audiobook was more an accidental choice, and I wasn't sure what to expect.

It takes you on a wonderful journey, where you may recognize some of your own characteristics.

While listening I had many laughs and just a few tears. It's heartbreaking and breathtaking at the

same time.

Intrigued ?

Listen to the book and find out where it takes you !
