This book teaches the art of approximation: dimensional analysis, guessing, and lying. To illustrate these techniques, we study the physics of everyday phenomena. The audience for the book includes graduates and upper-level undergraduates in physics.
- Power Engineering Training Systems
For the use of students and examination candidates, approved by the Interprovincial Power Engineering Curriculum Committee and the Provincial Chief Inspectors' Association's Committee for the standardization of Power Engineer's Examinations in Canada.
- Educational Testing Service
The test consists of approximately 100 five-choice questions, based on diagrams, experimental data, and descriptions of physical situations. Questions can be answered on the basis of a mastery of the first three years of undergraduate physics.

The basic idea of this book is to study the concept of time viewing the World as the result of some form of computation of finite precision. This is a modification the classical mechanistic idea of the World as a clock of infinite precision.
