Book Review

by Bennett Edlund, Opinion Editor

My name is Bennett Edlund and I, like most people, found myself at a loss over what to do during the coronavirus lockdown. I’ve always been a reader, so I started to read, both physical books and audiobooks, more and more as I gained more free time which has given me knowledge on many books to read and why. For the next couple of weeks, I will share my opinions on books that you should read during the lockdown as well as providing details and background information for each book.

“Seven Brief Lessons on Physics” is a short book for its content, only 81 pages; but the book is a very good resource for anyone who wants to get into physics. It covers topics from relativity to black holes, all in-depth but in an easy-to-understand way; stating in the preface “These lessons were written for those who know little or nothing about modern science”. The author is a theoretical physicist from Aix-Marseille University, proving not only his prowess in physics but in writing as well.

Look forward to: “The Chronicles of Narnia”
