Reviews
"Falling Felines and Fundamental Physics is a fascinating and fast-moving journey of a book. And author Greg Gbur is a virtuoso guide. The result is an addictively smart and funny don't-miss exploration of science, from free-falling cats to the history of photography, quantum physics, eccentric scientists, and more."--Deborah Blum, author of The Poison Squad: One Chemist's Single-Minded Crusade for Food Safety at the Turn of the Twentieth Century
"Even cats obey the laws of nature. In this engrossing book, Greg Gbur uses cats' mysterious ability to land on their feet to explore how physics works in the real world."--Sean Carroll, author of Something Deeply Hidden: Quantum Worlds and the Emergence of Spacetime
"When the shelves in the science section of bookstores groan under the weight of tomes concerning String Theory and the Higgs Boson, this extremely well written popular science book concerning such a human-scale problem is refreshing."--James Kakalios, author of The Physics of Superheroes
