A pretty great introduction to important scientific topics of the "kilometer wide and centimeter deep" (covers a lot of topics but none in huge detail) variety. I will definitely be recommending this to my Physics 1100 students. ( )

First words
Sometime in the next few days you are going to pick up your newspaper and see a headline like "Genetically Engineered Tomatoes on Shelves" or "Japanese Take Lead in Superconductor Race." (Introduction)
Your life is filled with routine -- you set your alarm clock at night, take a shower in the morning, brush your teeth after breakfast, pay your bills on time, and fasten your seat belt.
