Read in November, 2010

Very easy book to read, but if you are looking for detail in how specific problems are worked, then skip directly to the appendix. I was expecting something more along the lines of "The Physics of Superheroes," but what I ended up getting is anecdote of a situation and an overview of how calculus can be used in such situations. But it really lacks in explaining exactly how the author got to their answer.
