If someone says that a star is 100 light years away, how do they know that? Why is uranium so much more explosive than gasoline?
This book covers a number of physics topics and provides an overview of how we answer questions like those. Most chapters ask a question, give a background, answer the question, then answer a sample problem related to it to provide a feel for the actual physics involved. The math involved in answering those questions is covered in high school for the most part, and I call out sections that require a stronger math background so that you can skip those if you want.
If you are interested in science or math, you will likely enjoy this.

I have always been fascinated with science. I went to school for physics and worked as a researcher at a number of universities before switching to a career in software. Software is fun and all, but I really miss the problem solving associated with working in physics, so I write books and websites that deal with it.
