Movement and Motion


Everything has been in motion, in one way or another, since the beginning of time...

Movement and Motion describes the various types of motion – upwards, downwards, sideways and oscillatory. The author, Robert D. Cohen, focusses on how these movements can be achieved and what makes them possible. From stone bridges over streams to physical forces like gravity, all aspects of movement are included within this book.

Laced with anecdotes on the many different kinds of movements, Movement and Motion covers a wide variety of topics, including rocket science, dancing by humans and animals, space travel and deep sea exploration. It also covers metaphorical aspects, such as climbing to the top of the heap and trying to stay there...

The topics covered can be enjoyed by those who have a strong interest in science, medicine and biology. The unusual mixture and broad range of movements within the book allow the reader a chance to develop a deeper understanding of the different types of movement that take place everyday.
