Zoom - Bob Berman

Zoom by Bob Berman takes a thrilling tour around the wondrous and myriad motions that shape every aspect of the universe. Sitting still in a quiet room, you might just be able to convince yourself that nothing is moving. But air currents swirl about you. Blood rushes through your veins. The atoms in your chair jiggle furiously. And the planet you are on is whizzing through space 35 times faster than the speed of sound. Spanning astronomy, geology, biology, meteorology and history, he explains how clouds stay aloft, how the earth’s rotation curves a ball's flight, how a mosquito's familiar whine is tuned to a perfect A sharp, how the day gets longer every century, and much more.
