Ever wonder why balloons rise, apples fall, and golf balls sometimes go awry? Does trying to decipher the meaning of electromagnetism throw off your equilibrium? For those of us who aren't as mathematical as Newton, E=MC2 disproves the theory that physics is all work and no play.

Packed with amusing real-world examples, this book covers the most important discoveries of physics -- without the mind-bending math and thorny explanations. With E=MC2 you don't have to be a scientist to . . .

  • Grasp why atoms and molecules sometimes behave like bouncing balls.
  • Learn that when life gives you lemons, you can make batteries.
  • Understand why the faster you drive, the longer it takes to stop.
And there's more. This book simplifies the theories about the big stuff (relativity) and the tiny stuff (atoms and protons) by taking you down the highway, to the local bar, proving that physics doesn't bite -- even if it does bang.
