Clearly-written text draws in readers with concrete examples involving familiar, everyday things, from earphones to compasses. The book covers the history of and key figures in the understanding of magnets, including André-Marie Ampère and Michael Faraday. Major concepts covered include magnetic force, natural magnets, permanent magnets, electromagnetism, static electricity, poles, magnetic fields, transformers, and MRIs.
