This is an excellent book for the first time physics student. It is very "straight to the point" when it comes to explaining physics concepts. This book does not waste time talking about senseless theroy that gets you no where. It tells the concepts of physics clearly and it has EXCELLENT examples to illustrate the concepts that it tries to explain. It has plenty of clear and concise examples. It probably has at least 12 to 15 examples per chapter witch is VERY excellent!!!!
Additionally, this book comes with a GREAT student solutions\help manual. The student solutions\help manual helps explain the concepts even more clearly thus giving you a better understanding of such a difficult subject.
I've seen this book has been around for a long time. I can see why this textbook has been around for a long time because of its superiour quality. I hope this book is still around for students in the future 50 years from now.
A great book.

This book gives a very thorough explanation of most of the things that surrounds us. It is very easy to understand due to the many examples, and yet manages to maintain very cogent. It does not require much math read this book, since this is explained as the book moves along, and is needed.
