Head First Physics is a comprehensive book that makes learning mechanics and practical physics with no pressure. Because it provides a fun, innovative, engaging and inspirational learning experience (rather than another reference book) for students or anyone else to understand the physics indeed. Especially, it will convince you that physics isn’t a dry subject with only theory, instead, it’s all about the real world we live in.

Head First Physics offers rich explanations, strategies, tips, pictures, illustrations, puzzles, stories, and quizzes to stimulate learning and retention to physics, without dry and theoretical introduction. It covers experiments, measurements, graphs, equations, and data analysis in physics. Most importantly, it will teach you how to approach problems by thinking like a physicist – just break down complicated problems into simpler ones that you already know how to deal with.

All in all, Head First Physics is perfect and more effective way of learning physics for anyone who are curious about our physical world – how things work in the natural world. Or, we can regard it as a serious textbook that makes learning physics fun for anybody and guides you through the world of physics.

// Key Features //

  • Helps you think like a physicist so you can understand why things really work the way they do
  • Gives you relevant examples so you can fully grasp the principles before moving on to more complex concepts
  • Designed to be used as a supplement study guide for the College Board’s Advanced Placement Physics B Exam
  • Introduces principles for the purpose of solving real-world problems, not memorization
  • Teaches you how to measure, observe, calculate — and yes — how to do the math
  • Covers scientific notation, SI units, vectors, motion, momentum conservation, Newton’s Laws, energy conservation, weight and mass, gravitation and orbits, circular motion and simple harmonic motion, and much more
