This book is a physics primer, intended for an audience with no physics background. The main text follows an historical framework. At the publisher's request, the author attempted to be humorous throughout, though the reader will have to separate the author's humor from the editor's. Only high-school math is required (promise!) and this is found mostly in examples kept separate from the main text.

Due to publisher's madness, Instant Physics contains a large number
of misprints, especially in equations and in the figures. Beware! There is also
at least one whopping error on my part, in the chapter on quantum mechanics,
due to my haste to keep things simple. Click here for list of errata.
