Got this for my daughter as well, just not interested.

What do Newton, Einstein, and "a typical kindergartner have in common? Aside from playing with their food and bad hair, they demonstrate a unique ability to ask deceptively simple questions..."
If you are wondering how cosmic inflation theory works, read cosmologist George Smoot's "Wrinkles in Time." If you are wondering about the weakness of perturbation theories or the strength of superstring theory, read theoretical physicist Brian Greene's "The Elegant Universe." If you want to know what quantum tunneling is, look it up in physicist John Gribbins' "Q is for Quantum." But --
If your "how does that work" questions are less abstract, perhaps like: why is the doorknob opposite the hinges on a door (?) or why is the sky blue (?) or -- for something slightly more advanced -- how might an electron be pushed as close as possible to light-speed (?), then pick up a copy of Gundersen's "Handy Physics Answer Book." A wonderful resource, the book is exactly what the title suggests. Interesting `everyday' questions are posed, the kind of questions a young child might ask, but which most adults would struggle to answer. The answers follow, always in clear and concise language. It will be money well spent, Gundersen, a high school physics teacher, covers a lot of ground, and answers a lot of questions.

I took physics in high school (circa 1980) and its real-world relevance was not emphasized with the mathematics of problem solving...but I knew there was an answer out there. P. Erik Gundersen has done a fantastic job of making physics understandable to the layman and very fun by stressing its relevance to the real world. As he discusses the great physicists of the world and their discoveries, you can easily see how we have reached our current technological state. After reading this book I really understand a great deal more of how and why the world works. It has given me a great appreciation for the study of physics and I most definitely want to learn more! I always thought I liked chemistry the best, but this book has changed my mind! I recommend this book to anyone who wants to challenge their mind and to understand better the world in which we live. I read the book everyday while commuting to work on the Metro and I could not put it down! P. Erik Gundersen is a talented writer and teacher. I hope that he plans to write many more books on physics...I will be eagerly awaiting.

I have three of these books now and I continue to not be disappointed. These books help answer questions that you may not think about but as soon as you read them you end up saying to yourself "hmmm that's a good question"! This book is very cool to read and if you have any interest what so ever in Physics it will keep your attention for hours if you let it. Definitely not the type of book you would read cover to cover, it's more useful as a reference guide. I don't see why any college or high school student or anyone for that matter with an interest in Physics wouldn't have this book. It's a great buy and fun to read!

This book is in fact handy for someone that is wanting themselves or their children to learn more about the fascinating world of physics. While this isn't handy to have if you're heavy into math or engineering, this would be a great book to have for the average person who might need an above average answer about psychics problems.
This book has the answers to many questions that you or your family may have about physics. Even if you do not have a specific question, just reading the book is both fun and educational. For example:

Why is the Earth magnetized?

What is the tallest building in the world?

What do AM and FM mean and how do they differ?

What is the longest bridge in the world?

How does the human eye see?
