Norton's Elements of
Physics. 269 pages. This intriguing book is so well written
that it does not feel so much like a dry text on the mathematics of physics as an exploration of physical
laws, thus allowing someone well acquainted with physics or not at all to read this book with great
enjoyment. Carefully illustrated, this book begins by introducing the student first to general notions of
matter and force, and then introducing new elements one by one. Friction, adhesion, fluids, sound, light,
heat, and electricity are all explored, with careful explanations of experiments and studies done by the
scientists who explored these properties.
Ray's Elements of
Astronomy. 342 pages. Taking a different approach to astronomy,
rather than focusing on the Greek names for constellations this book focuses on the movements of heavenly
bodies and the science of astronomy.

read the book.
