James Kakalios -- "The Physics of Everyday Things"

James Kakalios will speak about and sign his new book, The Physics of Everyday Things, on Tuesday, May 23rd at 7:30pm.

About the Book:
In The Physics of Everyday Things, James Kakalios takes us on an amazing journey into the marvels that underlie so much of what we use and take for granted. Breaking down the world of things into a single day, Kakalios engages our curiosity about how our refrigerators keep food cool, how a plane remains airborne, and how our wrist fitness monitors keep track of our steps. Each explanation is coupled with a story revealing the interplay of the astonishing invisible forces that surround us.
