A fun, quirky look at the weird and wonderful side of physics, Can You Feel the Force? explores the physics of everyday things -- from how balloons stretch and stick to walls, to why the sky is blue, to why stars twinkle.

Designed to appeal equally to children who are intimidated by science and those who love it, Can you Feel the Force? is not just a reference book -- it's interactive with fun activities to try at home. Inside the pages are age appropriate text and experiments that will determine what's the best seat on a roller coaster, why does bubble gum stretch, why do fighter pilots have to wear specially tightened underwear, and why the world looks weird when you drive a car at the speed of light. Discover the recipe for slime, the secret of piercing a balloon without bursting it, and find out how to stick objects together with nothing but the magical force of friction; plus learn the ideas and discoveries of Galileo, Newton, Franklin and other key players in the defining principles and laws of physics.

Clear, exciting images and engaging text will make physics understandable and make kids curious to learn more in Can you Feel the Force?
