Interesting Books

  1. Feb 26, 2010 #1
    hey everyone,

    My class was thinking about buying a present for our physics professors.
    We are currently studying for A-Levels.
    as it is his last year of teaching.

    So I just wish to tell you the situtation
    -our prof is graduated in physics and maths
    -our prof told us that once he got graduated he got interested in quantum physics and is really interested in that branch
    -our prof also told us he likes to read and know about the history of physics.

    thus what I am asking you,
    could you give my some good of books
    in the categories mentioned
    you think he would love to read?

    thanks a lot

    I thimk you should go for a popular science book like the elegant universe (brian greene).

    You said he was intrested in history of physics then i would say "Archimedes to Hawkings"
