Review

Helen Czerski’s engaging debut book seeks to demystify physics in everyday life, so whether you know your refraction from your reflection, or find the entire subject incomprehensible, this should be an invaluable primer. — The Guardian

Excellent… an ideal gift for any scientifically inquisitive person, including children or adults who retain a child's sense of wonder. Robert Hooke would have loved it. — John Gribbin (The Wall Street Journal)

In an age when any questions we have about the workings of the world are instantly answerable via Google, physicist Czerski pushes us to resist the search engine.… [W]hy not learn some simple physics so that you can try to puzzle things out for yourself? — Scientific American

Delightful.…Replete with historical detail.…Storm in a Teacup will entertain and educate any person with a healthy curiosity about the natural world. — Physics Today

This book is charming, accessible and enthusiastic. Helen invites you in to see the world through her eyes and understand how a physicist think. It’s a wonderful way to discover the hidden scientific connections behind the ordinary and everyday. — Hannah Fry, author of Hello World

A delightful book on the joys and universality of physics. Czerski brings our humdrum everyday world to life, showing us that it is just as fascinating as anything that can be seen by the Hubble Telescope or created at the large Hadron Collider. — Jim Al-Khalili, author of Life on the Edge

Storm in a Teacup is a course in physics, but it’s less like a classroom than a long walk with a patient, charming, and very, very learned friend. Czerski has a remarkable knack for finding scientific wonders under every rock, alongside every raindrop, and inside every grain of sand. — Jordan Ellenberg, author of How Not to Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

Physicist and rising BBC star, Dr Helen Czerski shows that science isn't something complicated for someone else somewhere else but all around us, happening right now in pigeons, teacups and cakes. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
