    Comprehensive, well done, and cheap to boot!

    When I purchased this work for little for than six dollars on B&N, I wasn't expecting nearly the legthly and well written exposition of general theoretical physics that I recieved. The first four chapters cover many of the mathemattical prerequisites to the various theories -vector mechanics and the like, and the chapters are written very well, so that anyone with enough familiarity with the mathematics could understand them. It contains a significant portion of the work in theoretical physics done in the last century and because of that is a very handy reference. Overall this was a great buy, and I recomend it to any student of physics such as myself

    Excellent introduction to higher physics

    Couldn't recommend a better book for self-study, that would help the reader to make the tranistion from elementary/undergraduate to advanced physics. Almost all areas of theoretical physics are covered, with each topic treated in a clear and precise manner. The required higher math is covered in the first four chapters (the reader is assumed to have undergone a standard course in Calculus including differential equations). There are numerous well placed examples that help clarify the concepts. Solutions for most of the problems are given at the end. After thoroughly digesting the material in this book, the reader can move on to the masterful exposition of theoretical physics series by Landau (Ten volumes, 'Course in theoretical physics').
