Using hundreds of stories, pictures, films, tables and puzzles, five volumes tell about sport, raindrops and animal life (mechanics, gravity and heat), about moving empty space and the sky at night (relativity and the structure of the universe), about lightning, lasers and nerves (electricity, optics, the brain, language and truth), and about colours, pleasure and the stars (quantum physics, nuclear physics and radioactivity). A sixth volume tells about the search for a final, unified theory of physics.
