Randy Wong's insight:

It is a very interesting book that covers many areas of science.  For physics it has topics of Kinematic/mechanical phyics, optics electricity, magnetism, thermodyanics, and theory of relativity.  It is not very in depth but might be a good way to get an idea of how to write to people who are not exposed to physics everyday.
