- I had only a basic understand in physics, but this provided all the information i will want, especially as an overview(coming from a student in general sciences, not specifically physics degree). The theories it covers (|Vol 1:Mechanics, radiation, and heat| Vol 2: electromagnetism, and matter| Vol 3:Quantum Mechanics|)are obviously very heavy for a new student, but they are all digestible. Excellent way to learn physics, for anyone who is interested or is a student in the field.
- It does provide equations and explanations, but a textbook would be the real academic way to learn. That being said, it gives you want a textbook fails on, with how fluid and satisfying it is. I cant remember any point being particularly dry, because of the style of writing, and because of how he makes real-world connections when they can be made. If you like physics in any respect and want to learn it... get this.
