Clever books?

  1. Jun 4, 2009 #1
    Hello everybody...

    i want a book that talks about some clever applications and problems

    in the fundamentals of physics >>

    >> also i want a book that take the famous concepts of physics and prove it or justify it

    clearly with pictures , mathematical proofs, clever experiments....

    Welcome to Physics Forums!

    Do mean "enjoyable?"

    At what level have you studied physics and math? High school? University?

    I have finished calculus one and two
    and the fundemntal of physics by Halliday

    It seems you want something in between "The long road to reality" (theory) and the "Feynman lectures" (experiment).

    In the future, you'll get many more replies and much more quickly if you're absolutely clear what you're asking in your original post. People don't generally enjoy squinting at misspelled and very vague messages and then trying to formulate an intelligent reply.

    You could try some of the better popular science books out there (like some on http://www.sciambookclub.com/ [Broken]) or read a few biographies of famous physicists or mathematicians (some of them are surprisingly entertaining). I think I know what sort of thing you're looking for but it's a lot to ask. Most physics books are written for complete laypeople ,with stuff like 'Is time travel like in Star Wars possible?' or other dumbed-down nonsense, or it's very rigorous and math/equation heavy. I'll keep on thinking though; this is an interesting question.
