Reviews:

CD-ROM Today, February 1996

"Many people are intimidated by the subject of physics. Fortunately, there are some physics folks who take it more lightly. Among these happy few are Larry Gonick and Art Huffman, the brains behind The Cartoon Guide to Physics. Based on their book of the same name, this disc presents the basic concepts of mechanics, the branch of physics concerned with moving bodies in a fun, light-hearted way."

"Overall, The Cartoon Guide to Physics is great fun. The basic concepts of mechanics are presented in a whimsical manner, and the user interface is excellent. If you have a passing interest in physics, just skip over the math you don't understand. If you have an interest in passing physics, however, this software should be quite helpful."
