Look around, there is an invisible force holding stuff close to this big planet like a giant magnet that attracts every single atom in the vicinity Amusingly, this fantastic phenomenon is holding together the whole universe Damn, Gamow did a great job explaining why Newton even invented Calculus to understand it Then Einstein joined the talk saying that it can even bend light If you don t believe it, Gamow does some calculations to entertain you Have fun.

Dette er popul rvitenskap slik jeg liker det Litt teknisk, litt matematikk, ordentlige forklaringer uten overdrivelser og sensasjonelle beskrivelser.Gamow er veldig flink forklare, antakelig den beste fysikkforfatteren jeg har kommet over Han er hakket mer teknisk enn mange andre b ker b kene involverer noen f ekte formler , men med litt videreg endematte i bakhodet burde mange klare komme seg gjennom dette Ihvertfall utrolig l rerikt.

Gravity by GamowHad heard a lot about this book It s a good book, kind of primer for seriously interested lay reader, though quite a bit dated.

A collection of essays on the subject of Gravity There is some math.

Good and clear explanations on gravity.

I was a little disappointed by this book From having read about Gamow in the past, I expected personal anecdotes and humor Aside from that, the book is not as easy for laypeople as Gamow seems to think Understandably, a book about physics will be heavy with equations, but for a book meant for laypeople, it almost reads like a textbook at times Though some of the stories are incredibly interesting, they are clouded by equations that are admittedly above my head, and Gamow as a writer adds very [...]

What can I say This book is about gravity From Galileo to Newton to Einstein, Gamow explores this fundamental force in nature giving a brief overview of the science and history behind it A quick read that discusses the fundamentals with the inclusion of Newton s calculus and various equations that help to describe it Most of the book is for lay people, however a little background in mathematics helps in actually understanding the equations.

I give this book only two stars because I was under the impression Gamow was a great populist when it came to science, writing books that would make science accessible to laypeople This book does not fit that category in the slightest That may be my own mistake, but I see no way that this book is truly comprehensible unless you already have proficience in higher math So if you do, you may rate this book higher.

Pretty awesome Who writes a popular text about gravity The classical stuff is good, the introduction to relativity is great It might not be as accessible as Gamow seems to think it is, though It would be fun to teach a class along these lines to people with no real math There s an error in the equation on page 88.

Interesting read It s not as accessible to the lay reader as some make it out to be Some of the math requires some knowledge of trig and calc, but if you don t have that, you can just press the I believe button and move on.

Given the age of this book, it s great I does a fantastic job of the search for gravity and the related math that has resulted from it I would definitely add it to the list of books to read if you love knowing the history of the issue.

Science is fun Gravity is such a weird thing, but Gamow makes it accessible in 6 chapters He talks about Newton a lot for obvious reasons and there is an entire chapter dedicated to a brief history of calculus or the calculus.

There were a few aha moments for me while reading this book Weirdly, the section on calculus was helpful than I would ve expected.

Well beyond any mental capacity that I have ever even dreamed of possessing But still exuberantly interesting.

Fantastic

Exceptional and beautiful.

George Gamow is a brilliant teacher He gently leads the reader through the mathematics of gravity With his quaint hand drawn diagrams, it was a pleasure reading and working through this book

Great insight into some fundamental problems of mechanics and kinematics

Es muy, pero muy bonito, muy al alcance del publico, y muy facil de leer Es agradable, y tiene muy buenas reflexiones sobre el desarrollo de las teorias fisicas.
George Gamow Russian pronunciation am f March 4 O.S February 20 1904 August 19, 1968 , born Georgiy Antonovich Gamov , was a theoretical physicist and cosmologist born in the Russian Empire He discovered alpha decay via quantum tunneling and worked on radioactive decay of the atomic nucleus, star formation, stellar nucleosynthesis, big bang nucleosynthesis, cosmic microwave background, nucleocosmogenesis and genetics.
