I am a physicist by training and like to learn more about everyday phenomena, i.e. how things work.
All books on this rather general topic go in the direction of introducing physics, they want to transport fascination to the reader and help people to think like scientists think.
It is a long time now that I am looking for something more advanced. Ofcourse it is interesting to know how a coffee machine works or lighting is induced. But I would love to read about it in detail, on the basis of physical laws, and why not using some formulas?
Have you encountered books like these?
