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 graduate students and upper-level undergraduates in the physical and mathematical sciences, as well as practicing engineers and physicists.

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.

This book, while avoiding purely technical details, tries to make known the general results at which physicists have lately arrived, and indicates the direction and import which should be ascribed to those speculations on the constitution of matter.

A radical interpretation of modern physics. Rather than consciousness existing in space and time, it is suggested that the strange phenomena associated with quantum physics are better understood if space and time are structures within consciousness.

A short book on those fundamental day-to-day nuances and habits every physics teacher needs to do in order to teach the physics content. Based on almost twenty years of teaching high school and first-year university physics.
