Summary and Info
Think that brightness of light is no big deal? Think again. :-)
With chapter titles like Chapter 2's "Light as a Law-Abiding Quanitity" or Chapter 3's "Seeing Things", this book has as much heart as it does wit.
Intelligently written, it provides an important counter-weight to all flights of fancy (successes--Plank's Black Body Radiation--and failures--N Rays! lol) as well as their public perception.
