I am reading a book for my physics class, "Scrooge's Cryptic Carol" by Robert Gilmore. Its based on the age old story of Scrooge being visited by 3 ghosts, but in this story, the contact him to teach him the importance of physics!!!! I has alot of good humor, and describes several concepts such as momentum, conservation of energy, thermodynamics, entropy, time, ect... BUT it describes them using almost no math, and in simple analogies that are easy to understand. I would recommend having a look at the book if your new to physics, or even if your a veteran physicist.
