The title is a bit misleading, as this is basically a full-on modern Physics course, without the math. I'd still highly recommend it to anyone interested in the subject; just know that it is not the lightest reading you've done. :-) I aced the core Physics track at WPI with ease based in large part by the theoretical foundation acquired reading this book (and, of course, all the math I took beforehand).

An excellent read for layman physicist. This book provides the base required for higher level physics books.
