The Best Bits of Physics by Alasdair Shaw

indie ebook cover

Just got a new Kindle for Christmas? Interested in science and the world around us? Studying for exams?

Physics is fundamental to our understanding of the world around us. Everyone should have at least a basic knowledge.

This book explains some of the most interesting parts of physics in simple terms. It dips in, never taking more than two pages for one topic. There is even a good selection of experiments you can do at home!

It is suitable for any student of science as well as anyone wanting to enhance their knowledge.

"Engages the reader and inspires them to find out more."

"Clear and understandable. I like the conversational style."

"It made physics interesting, even magical."

"This book would be awesome for a high school student or for someone in a career requiring a basic understanding of physics."

There is now a Teachers' Edition of this book. It is packed with A4 worksheets for you to photocopy. Some are comprehension passages and questions; others are experiment instruction sheets.

A few words from the author:

Physics is a hard subject. Everyone knows that. Tell someone that you are studying physics and they will be impressed. This will probably be followed by a comment along the lines of "I could never do that at school". It is still one of the most demanding GCSEs and A-Levels.

This book is an attempt to serve up some of the best bits of physics. It should give you an understanding of the key concepts in modern physics. Along the way I hope you will be convinced that the heart of physics isn't all that hard after all. Perhaps you'll even be able to explain it to your friends and family...

A great present for someone studying physics or anyone who is interested in the world.

About The Author...

indie author

Alasdair Shaw


I studied at the University of Cambridge, leaving with a BA in Natural Sciences and an MSci in Experimental and Theoretical Physics. I went on to earn a PGCE specialising in Science and Physics from the University of Bangor. A secondary teacher for over ten years I have plenty of experience communicating scientific ideas.

I grew up in Lancashire, within easy reach of the Yorkshire Dales, Pennines, Lake District and Snowdonia. After stints living in Cambridge, North Wales and the Cotswolds I have lived in Somerset since 2002.
I have been climbing, mountaineering, caving, kayaking and skiing as long as I can remember. Growing up I spent most of my spare time in the hills.

Landscape archaeology has always been one of my interests; when you spend a long time in the outdoors you start noticing things and wondering how they came to be there. At university I chose geophysics as one of my options.

I am an experienced mountain and cave leader, holding a range of qualifications including ML, SPA and LCL. I am also a course director for climbing and navigation award schemes.
