Why Cats Land on Their Feet: And 76 Other Physical Paradoxes and Puzzles

 

This was an enjoyable read. The diagrams are helpful in explaining solutions and enhancing the  physical intuition that the author aims to encourage. I enjoyed the humorous writing style, The appendix was useful. I like the derivation of Coriolis effect by complex representation of the inertial and rotating reference frames.
