How to Build an Elephant: A Synthesis of Physics, Chemistry and Biology for Animal Lovers Big and Small
Do you know what a quark is? Or the difference between DNA and genes? Can you name the strongest force in the universe? Actually it's called the "strong force," which shows that sometimes science can be easy. It was easy when I was a child, before I ever entered a classroom. I learned about dinosaurs by reading picture books and building plastic models of their skeletons. Those long-forgotten pursuits, sparked by my more recent friendship with a theoretical physicist, inspired me to bridge the normally separate disciplines of physics, chemistry, and biology without chapters, histories, formulas, or complicated diagrams. How to Build an Elephant empowers readers with a basic conceptual framework of the most important forces and structures in our world.
