Book Review: Head First Physics

November 13, 2008

Here is a refreshing approach to the subject of Physics which is one of the elementary science subjects in any high school. Emphasizing a “reader as part of the problem” approach among the many innovations in this book, it is a delightful read.

The book covers almost all the topics of algebra-based mechanics and practical physics in its eight ninety four pages, including an index. In spite of being such a huge book, the book makes for a consistent pace of understanding and comprehension as it starts from guidelines to think like a physicist, units and measurement more advanced topics such as gravitation and orbits, oscillations and finally coming back to applying the algebra and physics formulae to having a new understanding to thinking like a physicist.

With memorable examples and various innovations of the Head First series on full exhibition, the book is one of the must reads taking away from drab text-books and learning by memory approaches to learning physics. One of the outstanding aspects of this book is the continuity of the topics as they connect with each other while interpreting the examples.
