Author Essay

I have no mathematical skills. Well, that’s not entirely true: I can add and subtract. I can even divide and multiply a bit. But other than that I am pretty hopeless. So physics is definitely not a part of my daily life in any way, shape, or form.

Now, I work on a lot of Science Fiction books. And occasionally these books bristle with concepts in physics. A lot of the time the physics used does not exist yet in this time and place, but every once and a while there’s something that needs to be checked. That’s when I go to my reference shelf and dig out a copy of Instant Physics. It’s amazing what Rothman can help you understand, even if you only have rudimentary skills in the mathematics department.
