Ordinary sixth-grader Simon Bloom has just made the biggest discovery since gravity - and it literally fell into his lap. Or onto his head, anyway. You see, Simon has found the Teacher's Edition of Physics, a magical reference book containing the very formulas that control the laws that govern the universe! By reciting the formulas out loud, he's able to do the impossible - like reverse the force of gravity to float weightlessly, and reduce friction to zoom across any surface!

But a book that powerful isn't safe with Simon for long. Before he knows it, he is being pursued by evil forces bent on gaining control of the formulas. And they'll do anything to retrieve them. Now, Simon and his friends must use their wits and the magic of science in a galactic battle for the book, and the future of the universe, in this funny, fast-paced science fiction adventure from first-time author Michael Reisman.

Listener Opinions

    " Although the science part was a little dry for me, this adventure involving a boy who becomes the keeper of a book allowing him to harness the laws of physics would be a great rec. for 5th -6th grade boys. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 2/6/2014

    " 6th-grader Simon Bloom unexpectedly gets the Book of Physics, a uniquely powerful book which allows him to manipulate the laws of physics to control his surroundings. Unfortunately, he is not the only one who wants the Book. And some are willing to kill to do it. Newton's Laws and some space-time theory are thrown in, but in such a way that they enhance the story instead of feeling pedantic. Very well done and enjoyable. "

    " It was a good book, it's just there was not as much excitement as I would like. But as far as books with Science go, it was not that bad. "

    " i guess i just don't get it. there are tons of great reviews, but to me, it seemed hokey/cheesy/boring. meh. i guess i'm just not a fan of "gravity arms" and star balls or whatever. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 DJ Yossarian | 12/1/2013

    " Highly engaging plot with believable (for SF) characters. Personally I'd like a little more control over the laws of physics, but I'm too lazy to go through what Simon when through... "

    " What a charming book! Clever and funny and with a voice that makes me wonder what the 6th Hitchhiker's Guide book might have been like if it had been written by Michael Reisman. I look forward to reading Simon's next adventure! "

    " 2011 Battle of the Books
    I really liked how this book took principles of physics (gravity, velocity, electricity, etc) and turned them into something cool. The characters used these formulas to fly, "skate", and basically defeat bad guys. Awesome. "
