Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
- These books provide very good coverage of the ideas and workings in physics. From the early days, what we believe now, and to what physics could hold in the future. It provides a very casual and extremely informative method of conveying the theories, and explains things very well. While it doesn't hold your hand or provide too many examples, it does explain concepts quite cleanly. The box and hardcover are high quality, and are very durable.
- 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.

Of course, it is a bit outdated because it was written quite a while ago now, but it is a great start for someone who wants to understand physics. There are no complexe arithmetics, but the formulas are explained very intuitively. A great buy for physics fans.

I'm a bit obses about physic and I must amit those books are a real pleasure to read. The eplanation are not that easy to understant but with care and times you can understand a lot about the wolrd in physic language.
