This highly readable introduction to modern physics was written by Nobel laureate Max Born. The book begins with an explanation of the kinetic theory of gases, providing a step-by-step development of general concepts of Newtonian mechanics and thermodynamics. Subsequent chapters discuss the structure of the atom and aspects of nuclear physics
Physics in my generation by Max Born( Book )
51 editions published between 1956 and 1989 in 3 languages and held by 1,146 libraries worldwide
Professor Born, one of the most distinguished physicists of our time, has selected some of his most popular writings covering a period of thirty years, framed between his introduction to Einstein's Theory of Relativity (1921) and the postscript to the American edition of The Restless Universe (1951). It includes several discussions of Einstein's work, a short autobiography and articles dealing with the philosophical background of physics and its revolutionary changes during Professor Born's lifetime. Each treatment of a problem illuminates it from a different angle - all of them from a personal point of view
