Elemental (US Version)
The Americanized version comes with sensible spellings of words...like "Americanized" with a z (which frankly makes more sense). Plus we converted temperatures into Fahrenheit, distances into feet and inches etc. Also, it comes with a free bald Eagle.*
*not actually true.

Fundamental: How Quantum and Particles Physics explain absolutely everything (except gravity) is the follow up to Elemental which goes even deeper into the laws of physics, right down to the fundamental particles themselves...the quantum realm!
Without using a single equation, Fundamental, explains the basics of quantum physics in plain English, telling the stories of the scientists who discovered it, the experiments which confirmed it and the bizarre implications for our lives.
What was Schrodinger's cat?
How does quantum physics predict multiple universes?
What exactly does the Higgs boson do?
Whether you've just heard about it or you're studying it, Fundamental is the ultimate crash course to quantum and particle physics.
Plus there are jokes. And diagrams.
Plus a few references to Batman.
