Wouldn't it be great if there were an introductory physics book that actually made the subject interesting? Finally, with Head First Physics, there is. This unusual book takes the stress out of learning introductory physics by providing a fun and engaging experience, especially for students who "just don't get it." Why unusual? Head First Physics offers a format that's rich in visuals and full of activities, including pictures, illustrations, puzzles, stories, and quizzes. It's a very playful, mixed-media style proven to stimulate learning and retention. One look will convince you: This isn't mere theory, this is physics brought to life through real- world scenarios, simple experiments, and hypothetical projects. You'll quickly discover that physics isn't a dry subject. It's all about the world we live in, encompassing everything from bungee jumping to wireless networks.
