The title is a bit misleading as all physical formulas are also mathematical in nature. This book is a synopsis of the most widely used formulas to describe geometric figures and then moves on to areas of physics such as motion, work, heat flow, light, sound and electricity. There is a brief explanation of each formula and detailed diagrams are used to complete the descriptions. While this book is useful as a pocketbook of reminders, it has little use if your goal is to learn how mathematical formulas describe the physical world.

"Useful Mathematical & Physical Formulae" offers a compendium of important formulae from mathematics and physics. A lot of ground is covered in the +/- 50 pages of this book. Most useful, in my opinion, for individuals who use mathematics and/or physics on a regular basis, this book could also serve as a good "jumping-off point" for a wider audience for further reading and learning in areas covered in this publication. What I found most interesting about this book was the highly dense (in terms of content) contiguous presentation of formulae from a wide array of areas within the fields of both mathematics and physics. For those readers with an interest in numbers in general...and some important formulae that describe many aspects of life...this is an interesting read.

Besides the presentation of the book, which I think is inspiring (our natural physics are constantly alluded to as a form of sorcery, and that at least catches MY enthusiasm, far from the world of books and chalkboards), the actual physics here are explained in enough detail for the reader to make intelligent use of the formulas it contains. Anyone that's been familiar with working physics problems in the past will find this book perfect for refreshing the memory, not just of the formulas themselves but what they MEAN.

This is an amazing small book that has the information density of a microchip. It covers so much ground in numerous quantitative disciplines. If you don't know or remember a specific subject or formula fairly well, you'll need to study the material over at supplemental informational sources such as Wikipedia. But, it is a great short cut or glossary of the main formulas in math, physics, and trigonometry.

Wooden Books have done it again. Quite how they managed to fit the major equations from Maths and Physics into one tiny cartoon book is quite beyond me. With a great little Wizard and a pair of elf-things to help you get the picture, this book covers algebra, statistics, geometry, probabilities, trigonometry, mechanics and so much more you wont believe it. With metric-imperial conversion stuff at the back and iterative functions too, this is the present of choice for any maths fan out there. New Scientist Magazine UK gave it 9 out of 10, so I'll give it 5 stars here!
