Classical Mechanics: The Theoretical Minimum

Author(s): Leonard Susskind; George Hrabovsky

Physical Sciences

Here is the ultimate master class in modern physics. In Classical Mechanics, world-class physicist and father of string theory Leonard Susskind and citizen-scientist George Hrabovsky combine forces in a primer that teaches the skills you need to do physics yourself. Combining crystal-clear explanations of the laws of the universe with basic exercises, the authors cover the minimum that readers should master in order to move on to more advanced topics. Instead of shying away from the maths that is essential to any understanding of physics, they provide a practical toolkit that you won't find in any other popular science book. 'So what do you do if you enjoyed science at school or college but ended up with a different career and are still wondering what makes the universe tick? The Theoretical Minimum is the book for you . . . It is also spot-on for any young student of science.' Wall Street Journal'A wonderful and unique resource. For anyone who is determined to learn physics for real, looking beyond conventional popularizations, this is the ideal place to start.' Sean Carroll, physicist and author of The Particle at the End of the Universe 'A pleasure to read . . . a beautiful, high-level overview of the entire subject.' Physics World'Very readable . . . provides a clear description of advanced classical physics concepts, and gives readers who want a challenge the opportunity to exercise their brain.' Physics World
