"Informative and engagingly idiosyncratic . . . brings the subject down to earth with offbeat, everyday examples and easy-to-follow experiments. . . . Both professionals and laymen can learn from this book." -- "The New York Times Book Review"
"A brilliant collection of intriguing examples of the physics of everyday phenomena, with the examples presented as puzzles." -- "Discover"
"A delightful book." -- "Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society"
This is the sequel to Craig Bohren's popular "Clouds in a Glass of Beer" (also available from Dover), the book that made the fascinating world of atmospheric physics accessible to readers without a scientific background. Like its predecessor, this volume abounds in lively writing, fun-filled and easy-to-perform experiments, and numerous photographs and illustrations that offer illuminating and memorable ways to learn about an intriguing branch of science.
