The Manga Guide to Physics
The Manga Guide to Physics teaches physics in an innovative way by joining real Japanese-style manga with serious and practical instruction. The book's story revolves around Megumi, a high school tennis star frustrated by physics class—and the physics of tennis. Luckily for her, she befriends Ryota, a geeky physics Olympian. After he's persuaded to help Megumi avoid failin...more
Concepts such as momentum, energy, work, Newton's laws of motions, velocity and much more was clarified for me. I'm so glad I read this.
I got this from a library, but I just might buy it for future reference.
(Fun fact: il mio primo prof era un ingegnere così poco competente che aveva sbagliato le misurazioni per la costruzione di un nuovo palazzetto dello sport, che era stato lasciato a metà proprio a caus ...more

The Manga Guide to Physics is a great introduction to physics.

At the beginning, one character has just been defeated in a game of tennis while being bothered by the physics involved in tennis. Another character offers to coach her in physics, so that she can defeat her opponent the next time they meet.
Beginning with Newton's Third Law (action and reaction), they move on Newton's Second and First Laws (on force, mass and inertia) and tie that in to momentum and ener ...more
Otherwise, it is good at illustrating the concepts in a way that is easy for most people to understand (visual le ...more
