Pulp Physics is insightful history

This book has fascinating insights into many historical situations of physics. It carries its message in simple conversational style. It is almost complete to the present day. It's omission is the acceleration of expansion of the galaxies. I am a 30 year teacher of college physics, now retired. I believe anyone from highschool to graduate school would be well served in understanding the progress of science by reading this book(or listening). The coverage is broad, but he has wonderful treatements of Galileo, Newton, Einstein, and cosmology in general. I recommend this book without reservation.

A very thought-provoking discussion

Pulp Physics starts off a little slow, with repetition of information presented in other publications from this site. But, as the author gets into the discussions about our solar system and the universe it becomes much more interesting. There are many good examples presented to help the listener understand and comprehend the vastness of everything. I will anxiously await his future discussions of the universe.
