I’m not reviewing popular physics books, since I lack the physics expertise to do so, and I’ve not read any except Feynman’s Six Easy Pieces and QED (both of which I enjoyed).  My son has read those plus others:

But I can’t review those books, not having read them, and I’m unlikely to convince my son to do a guest blog post.  So this post is not about books we’ve read, but about some reviews by Bruce Sherwood (author of the physics text we’re using, Matter and Interactions): Good popular physics books.  He describes three books that sound like they might appeal to my son:

If he ever does take an interest in writing a guest post, I’d certainly look forward to reading it.
