An excelent historical review on the concept of force! Sept. 7 2013
By nec05 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book will give you an excellent account on how the human understanding on the concept of force evolved with time. In the process, you will improve your own understanding on what force is and what is not.
For some reason, the book has many quotes in french or other languages with no translation. However, the paragraphs around those passages help understand the meaning of it.
I would say this book is meant for physicists or engineers that appreciate the historical an philosophical evolution of their fields.

On Concepts of Force May 16 2013
By Lawrence Horwitz - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Max Jammer's books are characterized by a formidable skill of presentation of complex subjects in science, always built on a sound understanding of mathematics and the technical aspects of his subject, but readily accessible to the interested reader. This is one of the most fundamental of his works, and very rewarding reading.
