I felt it was as good as you could get for a modern physics book. Short to the point, and worth it.

This is one of the best books I've come across to begin with the study of modern physics. It is essentially an introductory course on quantum mechanics and special relativity and combines experimental and theoretical physics appropriately, without requiring more than elementary calculus (simple derivation and integration). Very recommendable if you want to start discovering the concepts of quantum mechanics and relativity.

Bahasanya lugas sehingga materi yang tersaji dalam buku ini mudah dipahami. Fisika Modern yang begitu abstrak menjadi sangat mudah dipahami dan terasa begitu nyata.
