Physics Today: "Books that Stood Out in 2018" (link, full review)

A graphic novel that explains the physics of heat, energy, entropy, and the connection between entropy and information.

Max, a character based on the mythical Maxwell's Demon, is sent on a mission to help save earth from environmental disaster. First, Max must learn about energy, heat, and entropy from the historical giants of science. Along the way there is villainy and near catastrophe. This fun-to-read adventure story explains the first and second laws of thermodynamics in a way that is accessible to everyone.

I really enjoyed the demon adventures of Max! A good introduction to the central ideas of entropy and energy, without sacrificing accuracy. A really cool book!
