It’s like a Comic Book for Astronomers, Engineers and Physicists. A highly enjoyable, fast, and fun read. If you’re not one of the above then this is a good book to dip your big toe into the Physics pool. The Artwork is great to explain the point being made in a humorous way. At times in the book, it pokes the bear with a big stick of 95% of the unknown universe.

I just wish this book had been around forty (40) years ago when I picked up my first book on ballistics (basic physics). Now my question is where would Physics be if it was not for ballistics? The answer is neither in this book nor on the web site of PHD Comic.com. A lot of the small details of physics are beyond the scope of this book which is good because it is a fun read.

If you’re a budding Physicist or an old person just looking for the answers I would highly recommend a romp in “We Have No Idea”. It’s just plain fun. Not like some of those books that leave you scratching your head.

I would give it 6 stars but it only goes to 5.
