    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"
    "Great book for an intro to physics"

    Story

    For the Love of Physics was a great read. If you have watched any of Walter Lewin's lectures online, you know that he is a great teacher. In this book, he gives a good overview of physics. Towards the end of book, he goes into x-ray astronomy and talks about his research. Overall, this is a great book, I highly recommend it.

    In "Relativity: The Special and the General Theory", Einstein describes the theories that made him famous, illuminating his case with numerous examples and a smattering of math (nothing more complex than high-school algebra). Einstein's book is not casual reading, but for those who appreciate his work without diving into the arcana of theoretical physics, Relativity will prove a stimulating read.

    Teddy says: "Underwhelming and dissapointing"
    "Good book, needs better narator!"

    Story

    This is a good book, for an easy introduction to two challenging portions of physics, special and general relativity. Written by the former of the theories, Albert Einstein. The narrator of this book does a poor job trying to convey the information in this book, especially the equations and the scientific notation in the book. He calls k' "k to the first" rather than "k prime" as it should be. Someone familiar with physics or at least science should narrate this book.
