Ever been confused by basic physics and intimidated by the mere thought of Einstein's relativity theories? If so, yet curiosity still beckons, this book is for you! The reward? The colorful history of the elusive notion of motion and unique insights into the fundamental physics behind it all - including relativity. The physics of motion is so fundamental to science and the technological age in which we live that four of the most illustrious names in the annals of science owe their towering reputations, in large part, to their milestone work on the physics of motion. This book relates the stories of Johannes Kepler, Galileo Galilei, Isaac Newton, and Albert Einstein as they each stalked the elusive notion of motion. Following in their footsteps, both the layperson with no formal background in mathematics or physics and the practicing engineer/scientist will better understand those physical principles which eluded the best minds for centuries. As Aristotle observed over two thousand years ago, in order to know the natural world, one must first understand motion. Alan Kubitz lives in the heart of California's silicon valley where he spent many years as an electrical engineer designing computer peripheral devices. Throughout his engineering career and subsequent retirement, he has been deeply interested in the history of science, with an emphasis on the fifteenth through the nineteenth centuries. His particular interest is the physics of motion and the pioneering scientists (natural philosophers) such as Galileo and Newton who bequeathed to us the intellectual crown jewels which comprise the foundation of modern physics. Mr. Kubitz has accumulated a substantial reference library on these subjects and enjoys writing about them. Other interests include music, book collecting and, with his wife, their four grandchildren. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering from Stanford University and a Master of Science degree in electrical engineering from the University of California, Santa Barbara.
