Breakfast with Einstein
Science is everywhere. Have you ever thought about how many parts of our day are filled with science. One type of science called physics plays a major part in our normal daily routines. “Breakfast With Einstein” written by Chad Orzel, describes the many times we use physics in our morning routine. Love how each chapter goes in depth on the physics of things we deal with everyday without overly complicated writing.
- Sunrise: The Fundamental Interactions
- The Heating Element: Plank’s Desperate Trick
- Digital Photos: The Patent Clerk’s Heuristic

As seen in the New York Times Book Review, Chad Orzel’s Breakfast with Einstein illuminates the strange phenomena lurking just beneath the surface of our ordinary lives by digging into the surprisingly complicated physics involved in his (and anyone’s) morning routine.
