Review: The Manga Guide to Physics

The Manga Guide to PhysicsThe Manga Guide to Physics by Hideo Nitta
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This Manga Guide has more of a story than the electricity one, but less than the calculus one. The style is very wacky – like a comedy manga and it reminds me a lot of Azumanga Daioh with all the digressions, daydreams, and general surrealism. It does a good job explaining physics, especially if you’re learning physics without calculus. Like many other books in this series, it uses real world examples (primarily tennis in this book) to explain the principles and why a student should bother learning physics if they aren’t going to become an engineer or scientist.
