Bob Berman

How Everything Moves: From Atoms and Galaxies to Blizzards and Bees

In ZOOM, Bob Berman explores how motion shapes every aspect of the universe, literally from the ground up. With the same informative and entertaining style that he brought to THE SUN'S HEARTBEAT, Berman spans astronomy, geology, biology, meteorology, and the history of science, uncovering how clouds stay aloft, how the earth's rotation curves a home run's flight, and how a mosquito's familiar whine is a perfect A sharp.
Natural motion dominates our lives, and interrelated moving pieces form the very basis of the intricate mechanics of the world around us.

If you sit as still as you can in a quiet room, you might be able to convince yourself that nothing is moving. But air currents are still whistling around you. Your blood is rushing through your veins. The atoms in your chair are moving. In fact, the planet you are sitting on is moving through space at a rate faster than the speed of sound.

Bob Berman is one of America's top science writers and wrote the popular "Night Watchman" column for Discover magazine. He is a columnist for Astronomy magazine and the science editor of the Old Farmer's Almanac.
