I received the book through Goodreads First. I have not finished it, but I have to say that I am enjoying it so far, which may be due to the fact that I am a science major. I have little background in physics, however, but I find this book useful in introducing me to more concepts of physics as well as preparing me for what I might encounter in future courses. It's written in a way that anyone can understand.
