Tiger Woods Inadvertently Helps Physics Book’s Sales

Dec 5, 2009 by

I never thought Tiger Woods would ever get a mention on Bookbabble.  Accidentally found this while I was browsing in the Foyles website: Tiger Woods crash boosts physics book sales.  Here’s an excerpt:

A physics textbook pictured inside Tiger Woods’ Cadillac Escalade following the golfing legend’s infamous car crash has become an overnight hit.

The book, John Gribbin’s Get a Grip in Physics, was pictured in the foot-well of Woods’ car in the Wall Street Journal and sales have already started rising.

Get a Grip in Physics deals with many of the basic concepts underpinning modern research in the discipline.

Bookbabble Episode 54: A Family Affair

Recorded 23 Nov 2009
Babblers: Lone, Marcel, Renee, Donny, with guests Nicole and Rosemary

Synopsis:

Marcel’s sister Nicole joins us for a chitchat about nothing much in particular (well, if you consider almost 2 hours of chitchat ‘nothing much’).  We did talk about the new Twilight movie, New Moon (where Renee’s teenage daughter Rosemary made a cameo on the show to tell us the word on the street on this phenomenon), manga, Auster and the National Book Award.  Also, Lone’s foray into the Copenhagen Book festival, Bogforum, and was excited to tell her tale.
