Based on courses taught by the author for over 15 years, this text raises the scientific awareness of untrained readers. It lays the foundation of the laws that govern our universe in a nontechnical way and outlines the methods developed by physicists for the scientific investigation of nature, contrasting them with those developed by pseudoscience. Noting the damage incurred by confusing science and technology, the book demonstrates that only science is capable of advancing technology. For those desiring deepended understanding, the author provides a healthy dose of technical detail in the accompanying CD.
