A review of “Seven Brief Lessons On Physics”

When I studied physics at school half a century ago, the universe was explained by the steady state theory but now the Big Bang theory is very much the consensus, while I was taught that there was nothing smaller than electrons, protons and neutrons but now we have discovered quarks, gluons, neutrinos and more.

It’s hard to understand modern physics: both relativity theory and quantum mechanics are immensely complex and nobody has yet resolved the contradictions between the two.

But, if you only read one book on this subject area, it should beĀ “Seven Brief Lessons On Physics”. It is very short (80 pages) and written in a simple and appealing style. You can read my review here.
