A kwledge of physics aids in understanding the events in our lives on the everyday level. Indeed, this is true with simple mathematics, permitting solutions to many numerical problems. At this level of difficulty, the mathematics correspond to the requirements of problems in engineering and are typically covered in the curriculum requirements for a master's degree. The author chose this level of complexity for his work, calling himself an engineering physicist, and enjoyed solving a variety of such problems. His autobiography deals with these, interwoven with events of family and spiritual life.
