Astrophysics Simplified – The Book
Astrophysics Simplified is a popular science (science for general readers) book, written by Madhur Sorout, the founder of Maddyz Physics.
The book starts from various concepts of Classical Physics, the Theory of Relativity & Quantum Physics and then comes to the topics of Astrophysics and Cosmology, which makes it the best book for a beginner and a general reader (in the field of Astrophysics and Astronomy).

What’s in this Book?
It mainly focuses on the major developments in science by Aristotle and Ptolemy to physicists like Stephen Hawking and Richard Muller. The various concepts of physics, like relativity and quantum physics, are explained in this book along with various topics in astrophysics and cosmology. There is limited mathematics in this book, but some major equations are included. I have done so because one cannot grasp the true ‘beauty’ in physics without seeing the mathematical or abstract parts alongside practical laws. Physics is to mathematics what Tony Stark (Iron Man) is to J.A.R.V.I.S. or F.R.I.D.AY. The groundwork of computations, statistics, simulations etc. is done by F.R.I.D.A.Y. But, the real work of fighting the villains is done by Iron Man.
