Although slightly formulaic, each chapter is enlivened by gems of fascinating knowledge. The book also overreaches in the final chapter, which attempts to draw together multifarious strands of existence and society into a unified narrative. This ambitious bid to link everything together and impart a sense of its meaning hastily introduces new physics concepts, including gravity waves, nuclear fusion, and cosmic rays, without sufficient explanation. This equation-free book is an ideal gift for scientists of all stripes, anyone teaching science, and even physics-averse friends.

Storm in a Teacup
No notes for slide. Norton Companyq Language :q ISBN : q ISBN : q Description Take a look up at the stars on a clear night and you get a sense that the universe is vast and untouchable, full of mysteries beyond comprehension. But did you know that the key to unveiling the secrets of the cosmos is as close as the nearest toaster?
Our home here on Earth is messy, mutable, and full of humdrum things that we touch and modify without much thought every day. In Storm in a Teacup, Helen Czerski provides the tools to alter the way we see everything around us by linking ordinary objects and occurrences, like popcorn popping, coffee stains, and fridge magnets, to big ideas like climate change, the energy crisis, or innovative medical testing. Along the way, she provides answers to vexing questions: How does water travel from the roots of a redwood tree to its crown? How do ducks keep their feet warm when walking on ice?
