The Big Questions: Mathematics
In Big Questions: Mathematics, Tony Crilly answers the 20 key questions:What is math for? Where do numbers come from? Why are primes the atoms of maths? Which are the strangest numbers? Are imaginary numbers real? How big is infinity? Where do parallel lines meet? What is the math of the universe? Are statistics lies? Can math guarantee riches? Is there a formula for everything? Why are three$11.49

50 Ideas You Really Need to Know series
Who invented zero? Why 60 seconds in a minute? How big is infinity? Where do parallel lines meet? And can a butterfly's wings really cause a storm on the far side of the world? In 50 Maths Ideas You Really Need to Know, Professor Tony Crilly explains in 50 clear and concise essays the mathematical concepts - ancient and modern, theoretical and practical, everyday and esoteric - that allow us to$6.99
50 Mathematical Ideas You Really Need to Know
Just the mention of mathematics is enough to strike fear into the hearts of many, yet without it, the human race couldn't be where it is today. By exploring the subject through its 50 key insights--from the simple (the number one) and the subtle (the invention of zero) to the sophisticated (proving Fermat's last theorem)--this book shows how mathematics has changed the way we look at the world$0.99
The Origin of Species (Illustrated Edition)
Charles Robert Darwin (12 February 1809 19 April 1882) was an English naturalist. He established that all species of life have descended over time from a common ancestry, and proposed the scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection.He published his theory with compelling evidence for evolution in his 1859 book On the Origin$1.99
Lectures on the Forces of Matter
Michael Faraday, FRS (22 September 1791 25 August 1867) was an English chemist and physicist (or natural philosopher, in the terminology of the time) who contributed to the fields of electromagnetism and electrochemistry. Faraday studied the magnetic field around a conductor carrying a DC electric current. While conducting these studies, Faraday established the basis for the electromagnetic field$0.99
Does the Inertia of a Body Depend on its Energy Content? (Illustrated Edition)
Albert Einstein (1879-1955) needs no formal introduction, as he is known around the world as one of historys most brilliant geniuses and one of its most influential scientists. Einstein is often regarded as the father of modern physics and received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect".$4.99
An Entertaining Simulation of The Special Theory of Relativity using methods of Classical Physics
The principles of the special theory of relativity are extremely simple. Knowledge of the Pythagorean Theorem and an ability to perform the simplest algebraic operations are sufficient to be conversant with the kinematics of the special theory of relativity, as well as the time dilation and contraction of the longitudinal dimensions of moving bodies that are associated with relative motion.$15.19
Quantum Enigma : Physics Encounters Consciousness
In trying to understand the atom physicists built quantum mechanics the most successful theory in science and the basis of one-third of our economy. They found to their embarrassment that with their theory physics encounters consciousness. Authors Bruce Rosenblum and Fred Kuttner explain all this in non-technical terms with help from some fanciful stories and anecdotes about the theory's$13.59
Three Roads To Quantum Gravity
The Holy Grail of modern physics is a theory of the universe that unites two seemingly opposing pillars of modern science: Einstein's theory of general relativity, which deals with large-scale phenomena (planets, solar systems and galaxies), and quantum theory, which deals with the world of the very small (molecules, atoms, electrons). In Three Roads to Quantum Gravity, Lee Smolin provides the$6.99
Unravelling the Mysteries of the Universe
This is the Popular Reference edition of the fully-illustrated eBook, ISBN: 9781848584167. In this book, you'll learn why Florence Nightingale introduced pie charts, how Lewis Carroll regarded Pythagoras, and why some infinities are larger than others. You'll also meet the mathematician who knew eight languages by the time he was 11, the one who was sent to jail for gambling and the one who
