Yet the writing and the splendor makes you wonder otherwise. The illustrations go hand in hand with the lucid explanations.
This is the way Physics ought to be taught.
The prose style is in a manner that converses with you ...more
This edition covers quantum physics and QED, which is rare to find in a textbook which some would call "Introductory", and is a highly satisfying end to a large, yet highly useful text.
Finally, I can take all my old physics texts and replace them ...more
Perhaps one the best calculus-based textbook in Physics. Each section explains every topic in great detail. Examples are exhaustive. Perfect for undergraduate students but I don't recommend bringing it around the campus because its really really bulky.
When you want to read concepts about Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Electromagnetism and Optics, this book clearly discusses the fundamentals up to the mid-advance part. However when it comes Modern Physics, things become less interesting because som
I hope more books (especially the more advanced ones that are often riddled with proofs, theorems, and excessive use of mathematical jargo ...more
This book is certainly up there with Halliday's Fundamentals of physics. Right now I cannot say which one of those books should be on top... both are them are equally good.
