Release Notes

In this unique book, Arieh Ben-Naim invites the reader to experience the joy of
appreciating something which has eluded understanding for many years - entropy
and the Second Law of Thermodynamics.

The book has a two-pronged message: first, that the Second Law is not
\"infinitely incomprehensible\" as commonly stated in textbooks of thermodynamics
but can, in fact, be comprehended through sheer common sense; and second, that
entropy is not a mysterious quantity that has \"resisted understanding\" but a
simple, familiar and easily comprehensible concept.

Written in an accessible style, the book guides the reader through an abundance
of dice games and examples from everyday life. The author paves the way for
readers to discover for themselves what entropy is, how it changes, and most
importantly, why it always changes in one direction in a spontaneous process.
