So You Want to Learn Physics (The Fun Way)

These days when internet is easily accessible, it's easy to learn anything you like from home. Internet, being the biggest virtual library, gives you an opportunity to learn various science fields as well. Today I will show you some nice books that you can easily find on the internet. These books helped me to learn various subjects an get better at high school.

If you want to learn physics you should start from simple high school level physics, however there are some very nice books, which can teach you the basics of quantum mechanics, string theory, general and special theories of relativity and other.

There's a very nice book about time travel, which covers many aspects of general relativity, special relativity, quantum mechanics and some history of physics. This book is called Black Holes Wormholes and Time Machines by Jim Al-Khalili. It's a simple to read book that contains basically no maths, so it can be read by anyone.

Another great book for those, who want to learn the basics of modern physics is Elegant Universe by Brian Greene. This book also covers the basics of Einstein's theories, quantum mechanics and some history of physics. The main focus of the book is string theory.

After reading these books, you could find Stephen Hawking's books useful. The most popular of his books are The Brief History of Time and The Universe in a Nutshell.  Both of the books cover a wide range of physics subjects, are easy to read and contain some valuable knowledge.

The series of books called For Dummies contain a lot of useful books, basically about anything. You can find many useful books like The String Theory for Dummies, Physics for Dummies and so on.  I highly recommend these books for starters, because they're easy to use and contain all that a starter needs.

Well that's it for now. Thanks for reading. I hope these books, will be useful for you. Please subscribe or follow my blog if you like it.
