USA Best Books Award WINNER - 2015 CRUSHES MYTHS. UTTERLY BRILLIANT!

Did you know? • Momentum is for knocking people over • Energy is for breaking bones and causing pain • A haymaker travels 3.14159 times farther than a jab • You are only an “object” when you are rigid Fight Like a Physicist blends inquiry, skepticism, and irreverent humor—all while punching holes in myth and mysticism. Highlights include • Making physics your “unfair advantage,” in the ring and on the street • Examining center of mass, pi, levers, wedges, angular momentum, and linear momentum for martial artists • Reducing traumatic brain injury in contact sports • Exposing the illusion of safety provided by gloves and helmets • Overturning conventional wisdom on compliance during an assault • Busting up Hollywood action clichés Fight Like a Physicist reads like a manifesto on the rational practice of martial arts. It’s intelligent, fun, and dangerous—and nothing short of iconoclastic.
