Douglas C. Giancoli obtained his BA in physics (summa cum laude) from the University of California, Berkeley, his MS in physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and his PhD in elementary particle physics at the University of California, Berkeley. He spent 2 years as a post-doctoral fellow at UC Berkeley’s Virus lab developing skills in molecular biology and biophysics.

What I like is that it is detailed and certainly has better and more examples than what I learned on.

WARNING: The paperback edition is not the same as the hardback edition. They really shouldn't be listed together. The paperback edition has a big sign on the back of the book stating, "This is a special version of a textbook widely used by universities throughout the world. Pearson published this edition for the benefit of students outside the United States and Canada. If you purchased this book within the United States or Canada it has been imported without the approval or permission of the Publisher, and it does not include all of the same Problems." The Amazon product description did not disclose these important differences, and none of the third-party sellers seem to disclose this difference. As a result, I purchased the book, and it turned out my son couldn't use it for his class because, according to his Physics teacher, eight of the problem sets are different. Argh.

I used this book for two semesters of physics; I didn't like it. I found the explanations lacking and non-intuitive, and not many tips how to solve problems, but also the equations are not listed clearly. I found my self going on youtube and reading knight-jones-field college physics book as a supplement just to figure out what the book was trying to say.

To give an example of why I didn't like this book: In chapter 22 under Energy in EM waves, the author makes zero attempt to help you understand notation. I had no clue what a rms value was. Only after looking online did I find out that if you use the rms values
the S ----> S(avg).

I needed a text to review physics in preparation for the state licensing exam. I went online to find reviews and Giancoli was the top rated for non calculus based AP physics. I also used Holt and Cutnell and Johnson. I found Giancoli to be the best of them. Concepts are fully explained with no corners cut. Towards the end of chapters they often have real world application examples. There are many problems that get systematically more difficult and are rated by difficulty so that it is easy to find beginner, intermediate and advanced problems. Solutions are provided for the odd numbered problems.

I tutor so I generally use the book that the student's class is using. I find that I frequently turn to Giancoli for better problems and clearer examples to show the students. It is the best non-calculus text I have seen. I suppose the best indicator is that I enjoy using it. I don't find myself on guard for the next mistake or poor explanation or missing link in the thought chain. It is a pleasure to use.

I found the other books lacking. Holt seemed to be a template to push teachers to purchase products and services. It is somewhat like Windows 8. It is clearly a product of too many MBAs and not enough educators. I am still trying to understand the appeal of Cutnell and Johnson. I find it has holes in the progression of the topic. It does not have the rigor of Giancoli.

Regarding Hewitt and Halliday and Resnick. Hewitt deserves its fame as a great conceptual physics book. However I would like to see more problems included.

I learned physics from the second edition of Halliday and Resnick. I recently used the 7th edition while working with a student. I am still getting to know this edition. What I like is that it is detailed and certainly has better and more examples than what I learned on. It also has more photos and color photos - a vast improvement :) So far so good. I will do a detailed comment on it after I have had more time.

The perfect physics book, thank you! This is exactly what I wanted. Along with guiding readers through the fundamental concepts, formulas and their derivation, the text provides historical details about the development of physics as a field, which I really appreciate. If you want to understand the nature of the universe, you should buy this book, regardless of whether you are a first-year college student or a lifelong fan of self-teaching.

This textbook was a lifesaver. My school uses a REALLY bad textbook. You should probably take calculus if you are using this textbook. Yes, you don't need it, but I thought the concepts were easier to grasp because of calculus. (although it just might be because I hate algebra's long methods as opposed to easy calc) Idk, but this saved me on every exam.

I don't normally write reviews for books, but I really loved this book! My Physics professor wasn't great, so I basically had to teach myself everything. That would have been difficult if this book hadn't been as helpful. There are a lot of great examples throughout the chapters and there's a ton of helpful questions and problems at the end of each chapter. The coolest thing (for students at least) is you can find the solutions to the questions online for free! Although I strongly recommend working through them yourself first, of course! Although I have no background in physics (and completely suck at everything math), I successfully finished the physics course with an excellent grade thanks to this book.

No problems with the seller, the book came in good condition. The book itself was a decent read, with a few clear examples and a few not so clear examples. Ch. 16 on electricity was not very well written. The diagrams was a little difficult to follow, and my professor taught the chapter in a completely different than from the book.
I really like this textbook. There are selected answers in the back (odd problems) and explanations on concepts are great. The text walks you through common problems (hanging chandelier , ladder against a wall, ballistic pendulum, free falling objects) in a step by step manner.
