A young engineer deciphers incoming extraterrestrial signals, revealing an insurmountable puzzle. Will Thompson and a new Omniscient unveil technical plans in the decrypted data that are beyond human knowledge, and possibly beyond human capability. With an intuition that time is running out, their chances of understanding and constructing the devices seems impossible. They discover that new information may lie at the Nazi base in Antarctica.

This has been the leading college physics textbook for the past few decades and its talented original authors, John Cutnell and Ken Johnson, have retired, leaving it to me and my friend and colleague, David Young, at LSU, to continue their beautiful work. We published the 10th edition in 2015 (Wiley & Sons, Inc.). The 11th edition will be published January 2018. I like the new cover.
