Book Review: The Physics of Everyday Things

The Physics of Everyday Things by James Kakalios seemed like a book that I should really enjoy. I love learning details about things we take for granted. But I just couldn’t get into it. I started reading it in August and it just didn’t catch my interest. I skimmed it and moved it to my “didn’t finish” self.

The Physics of Everyday Things is based around “your” overpacked day. It goes into explain the science behind the things you use throughout your day. The story itself was a bit bland. The science parts read like a textbook to me. Just not something I found fun to read. No matter how many times I said “I’ll pick that back up today,” I never did.

I always feel a little guilty when I can’t finish a book. And now that I’m not finishing a book I got for review that’s only flaw was the inability to make physics interesting, I feel extra guilty. But that’s where I’m at on this book.
