  • Description
    In For the Love of Physics, beloved MIT professor Walter Lewin, whose riveting physics lectures made him a YouTube super-star, takes readers on a remarkably fun, inventive, and often wacky journey that brings the joys of physics to life. “For the Love of Physics captures Walter Lewin’s extraordinary intellect, passion for physics, and brilliance as a teacher”—Bill Gates. For more than thirty years as a renowned professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Lewin’s lectures made physics not only accessible but fun, whether putting his head in the path of a wrecking ball, supercharging himself with three hundred thousand volts of electricity, or demonstrating why the sky is blue and clouds are white. In For the Love of Physics, Lewin takes readers on a marvelous journey, opening our eyes as never before to the wonders of physics and its amazing ability to reveal the beauty and power embedded in our world. Could it be true that we are shorter standing up than lying down? Why can we snorkel no deeper than about one foot below the surface? Why are the colors of a rainbow always in the same order, can we stretch a hand out and touch one? Using superbly clear and simple explanations of phenomena we’ve always wondered about, such as what the big bang would have sounded like had anyone existed to hear it, Lewin surprises and delights with physics-based answers to even the most elusive questions. Whether showing us that a flea is strong enough to pull a heavy book across a table, or describing the coolest, weirdest facts about the tiniest bits of matter, Lewin always entertains as he edifies. “For me,” Lewin writes, “physics is a way of seeing—the spectacular and the mundane, the immense and the minute—as a beautiful, thrillingly interwoven whole.” For the Love of Physics is a rare gem that will change the way readers see the world.

    A book for everyone: Young and Old, Physics lovers and haters!

    Having been a keen follower of Walter Lewin's lectures through higher secondary, I was wondering if I should buy this book, as I had seen each and every demonstration by him in the class. It turns out this book is far more than that.

    If you love physics, you will start loving it even more! In case you have seen his lectures online (and loved it, there is no way a person can hate his lectures), you would find that this book has far more to offer, in the familiar style of language. Reading thi...

    For The Sake of Yourself..

    I am a regular viewer of Prof. Walter Lewin's video lectures and I love them. So I ordered his first literal publication(in popular science) the moment I heard of it. After reading the book the only word I can say is "WOW". It's truly absorbing, as if he is demonstrating the world of physics in front of you as he always do in his lectures.
    But in the last few chapters where he shared his experience about X-ray astronomy is really a masterpiece. It shows he is a scientist of the same height as...
