Physics: Why Matter Matters by Dan Green, Mike Goldsmith

From Simon Basher, the illustrator who showed the periodic table in a whole new light, comes a book that puts a fresh spin on physics.The science of physics is full of wacky characters and crazy concepts, but it often seems daunting and unapproachable. Physics throws open the doors and welcomes you in, introducing you to a wild community of characters - think of it as a site for the universe's building blocks.
