Book cover for Physics for Future Presidents: The Science Behind the Headlines

"A must-read for future presidents." --?New Scientist?

We live in complicated, dangerous times. Barack Obama and his successors will need to know if Iran's nascent nuclear capability is a genuine threat to the West, if biochemical weapons are likely to be developed by terrorists, if there are viable alternatives to fossil fuels that should be nurtured and supported by the government, if nuclear power should be encouraged, and what is the real truth about global warming. This is "must-have" information for all presidents―and citizens―of the twenty-first century. Winner of the 2009 Northern California Book Award for General Nonfiction. 73 figures and illustrations
