    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."

    Joseph says: "A perfect formula for a great read"

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    not particularly because it turned into a rant on global warming.


    Were the concepts of this book easy to follow, or were they too technical?

    The discussion on Physics was outstanding. He should have stayed focused on it rather than delve into environmentalism. his discussion on the makeup of stars, and effects of tars and light could have been condensed.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    rainbows


    Did For the Love of Physics inspire you to do anything?

    not really

    Not so very long ago, Eragon - Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider - was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders. months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can.

    Robert says: "All the reviews had me worried for nothing!"

    Would you try another book from Christopher Paolini and/or Gerard Doyle?

    Gerard Doyle Yes without hesitation. Christopher Paolini? maybe.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This story was long and drawn out. I got bored with this story. The only reason I stuck it out was to follow the various storylines it contained. The Galbatorix ending was quite frankly dissapointing.


    What does Gerard Doyle bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Gerard Doyle brings life and personality to the characters.


    Did Inheritance inspire you to do anything?

    Not really.

    With more than two million copies sold, this classic guide to accumulating wealth has profoundly affected the world. Author George S. Clason uses simple and inspiring parables to illustrate how easily people can change their fiscal habits to enjoy a comfortable level of financial independence.

    Though this book may have been written in the 1950 era, it still has valuable information for anyone who is interested in the basics of financial management.

    I guarantee anyone who utilizes the fundamental principles taught in this book will never be in debt, and never be short of money.
