This unique book places emphasis on the understanding of the material presented by adopting a reflective approach towards the scientific method used. Knowledge of algebra, geometry and trigonometry is required however, the authors introduce more advanced mathematical methods in the context of the physical problems which are used for analysis. Modern physics topics, including quantum mechanics and relativity are introduced early and are integrated with more "classical" material from which they have evolved.

I am currently taking a course in which this text is our primary learning manual. Relative to physics textbooks in general, it went into great detail concerning fairly advanced topics. However, it did not do a good enough job of laying down the fundamental principles of physics, which makes it more difficult to comprehend the more involved topics. The book also lacks a glossary and a comprehensive index. The examples are either too complex or too simplistic, and I have been forced to use several other books as auxiliary materials. If you are a physics instructor, I implore you, please DO NOT USE this text in an introductory course, unless the primary goal of your class is to drive away students from the study of physics, ranting madly about.

I am an introductory student in physics and our techer told us to buy this book since he thought it was a very good book.
I don't agree.
The book contains a lot of interesting material, but has few examples which can tell you how to use the new knowledge. The examples in the book is either very easy or hard to understand beacuse they don't tell you how they came up with the equation they use so solve the problem.
Don't buy this book. Buy University Physics instead. Much better

I find this book to be a terrific reference for those who are new to the field as well as for the seasoned physics student. It takes an unorthodox pedagogic approach which is very effective, giving a comprehendible and surprisingly comprehensive presentation. It is helpful both as a quick reference for finding equations and definitions of terms and as a text to read from beginning to end.

A great book, I just love it!
