Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Book excerpt: Science Slept Sixteen Centuries is a book for the reader who wants to learn what physics is all about - and for the person who has taken a few physics courses in high school, but wants to learn more about its diverse theories and historical development. Even if you have taken college-level physics courses, you might not necessarily know the fascinating history of physics development, and the backgrounds of physicists who contributed to that development, such as Kepler, Newton, the Bernoulli family, Planck, Bohr, Einstein, von Neumann and Oppenheimer, to name only a few. And of course, if you want to learn why world civilization still suffers from a hiatus in the advancement of science in general - and physics in particular - this is the book for you. In 2006, Allan Karson received enthusiastic feedback for his book idea, and was told that Science Slept Sixteen Centuries is a book that is very much needed. Now, 10 years later, this work is finally ready. - This book is written for intelligent, inquiring people; it does not talk down to them. - This book is exciting. Each chapter presents a different historical time period and a different physics discipline. This changing environment presents a continuing challenge. There are no long, non-factual, non-interesting or dull descriptions. - This book keeps the quantity of math equations to a minimum. Only one equation is presented and explained in detail: Einstein's fascinating equation that transforms how people, objects and clocks appear to change when they are moving at speeds that approach the speed of light. - There are no 'heavy' descriptions of physics theories; charts are used to provide supporting explanations and description points in charts usually consist of one-liners. - This book's sources have been scrupulously read to assure correct and complete details. Dive in to the mesmerizing world of the history and future of physics with Science Slept Sixteen Centuries.
