Physics for the 21st Century
Letter to the Author:
I just looked over your book and I must say I am impressed. What a tremendous job you did making a difficult topic appear so alive and interesting. You make me wish I was in High School and I could go through the educational process all over again. You will make a difference in lives of the newer generations.
Thanks for your efforts and from the looks of things that was no small feat.
Good luck in the future.

A great presentation of the physics of electricity - mixed with a bit of history
This book brings to life some of the concepts of electricity and physics in a presentation that entices you to read more.
The clean layout and interactive panels facilitate the understanding of the specific topic.
Although The Electric Force is written with a high school level of difficulty, it would be wonderful to have a jr. version for younger students.
Occasional quizes help to cement the material covered in a chapter and additionally there are experiments which should be performed to fully experience the principles.
This is the 4th in a series of Interactive Physics books by Tony Farley (but the first published (sounds like Star Wars to me)) and provides a fantastic structure for this series of books. This approach and layout could be used as a great framework for many other educational books for the K-12 students.
Wouldn't it be great if we could actually do some of the experiments right on the iPad?
Great Learning Tool!
Mr. Farley's interactive physics book is sure to be a hit among teenagers and young adults who like learning with interactive media. They will be learning basic concepts of physics in no time at all with engaging pages that come to life!
