The Speed of Starlight: How Physics, Light and Sound Work

£9.99

If only this wonderful book was available for this bookseller when at school, I may have avoided an embarrassing grade! Designed to present physics in a totally new light, The Speed of Starlight explores the topics of physics, light and sound in all its facets.  The confidence of its writers makes sometimes difficult concepts accessible.

Alongside incredible artwork from artist Ximo Abadía, science writer and astronomer Colin Stuart explores this subject anew with refreshing fluency.  Readers can visualise sonar sound, discover the speed of light and understand basic quantum physics by following easy to understand text and glorious graphics.  It seems as though impressive design meets exciting content in The Speed of Starlight so that readers are left informed and inspired.

Description

The Speed of Starlight: How Physics, Light and Sound Work

Colin Stuart and Ximo Abadia

(Big Picture Press)

From exploding stars to X-rays, The Speed of Starlight: How Physics, Light and Sound Work makes difficult concepts accessible.  For example, a huge scientific discovery like gravity appears simpler to understand through this engaging text and large, lavish illustrations.  The explanations for complex theories are witty and direct.
It seems like theories of physics such as sound, the speed of light and the vastness of space can be visualised. For example when something like energy is focused upon, we begin with the definition. At that point it is broken down that we ‘see’ how it works, alongside its explanation.  It seems that this approach enables a direct understanding of a range of subjects.  The same process is in place for seemingly mystical subjects like rainbows, solar eclipses, black holes, force and motion. Adults may ‘save’ such subjects as ‘how light and sound works’ for school or Just Because conversations. However, The Speed of Starlight: How Physics, Light and Sound Work is a superb reference for home and school.
