My book for April 2020 is Deep Down Things by Bruce Schuum - a physics book that attempts to greatly avoid the complex mathematics involved with each theory or concept presented in order to make the world of physics more accessible to a greater audience. It has 10 chapters with roughly 350 pages which means, in order to finish in April, I only need to read about a third of a chapter a day or 12 pages. Every chapter will get its own writeup in this thread and then an overall book writeup to cap it off.
I'd like to encourage discussion of the book and the concepts within it. As a student of engineering, I will volley questions as best I can in order to sharpen my own understanding of these things I'm interested in.
You can find my initial notes / extended writeup here
