No bullshit guide to math and physics

Often calculus and mechanics are taught as separate subjects. It shouldn't be like that. Learning calculus without mechanics is incredibly boring. Learning mechanics without calculus is missing the point. This textbook integrates both subjects and highlights the profound connections between them.

This is the deal. Give me 350 pages of your attention, and I'll teach you ever

Ivan Savov’s book stands among the best books I’ve ever read on the topics of math and physics. It is so good that it can easily accompany a student from a conceptual physics course all the way through undergraduate studies for those entering career paths in the hard sciences or engineering. This book is a handy quick-reference guide. It is a keeper.

I am recommending this book for my High School Physics students, because the content coverage is true to its title; direct, understandable, and conc

I'm glad somebody with proper math understanding wrote this excellent piece.

The title matches exactly the content, you will not find any boring academical bullshit in this book, but plenty of refreshing learning material about math and physics with charts, diagrams, formulas and examples.

The author gives you cloues and writes to you directly, for example : "In other words, if you want to divide the number z by the complex number s, you should..."

Finaly I can trash other math books and make so

Learning calculus in university? You need this book. It's that simple. It is both concise and helpful. For me it was a lifesaver. ...more

Compact and to the point. A good supplement to whatever long winded textbook you are assigned in your math course.

Currently reading and will be reading this book for awhile. Extremely challenging book, with a great overview of calculus, algebra and geometry. I am currently on page 90 and it has taken me 2 months to get to this point. Yet I am learning a ridiculous amount of math at a pretty good rate.

The only criticism I have so far, is that the author complains about professors and teachers throwing unnecessary curve balls and complex equations at their students, when he does exactly the same thing. I hav

Was looking for a book that would help my kid get into maths and it's applications where a book is not overburdened with concepts and tries to relay information such that it can be easily grasped. And this book delivers in spades! P.S. I also had a blast reading, there is something refreshing about not seeing a theorem or proof on every page of a book, having an easy read and still enjoy it, even if it's school level maths :) ...more

Good for applications. Omissions of proofs in certain topics.
