The Physics of Everyday Things by James Kakalios

How do wrist fitness monitors keep track of our steps? And how does GPS really work? In his totally readable, super-engaging book, physics professor James Kakalios reveals the mind-bending science behind the seemingly basic things that keep our daily lives running, from our smart phones and digital “clouds” to X ray machines and hybrid vehicles. “You won’t find a better, more enjoyable tour guide to how the laws of physics explain the world all around us.” —Sean Carroll, Caltech physicist
