"The Context sections are absolutely fantastic. They are extremely useful. I love them. It is one of the main reasons that I really like this book…I am completely satisfied with the new Context [Alternative-Fuel Vehicles] and the conclusion. I think most students will appreciate this topic, and the relevance of physics in designing and developing future transportation systems…Overall, the new edition looks great. I am looking forward to using it."
"We have used this textbook since its 1st edition. One reason for its adoption was that we feel it is lucidly written and contains about the right amount of detail for our students. Students particularly appreciate the end-of-chapter summaries, as well as the several worked examples throughout the text."
[Regarding Context 9] "The authors here attempt something very cool: they set before the student spectacular and esoteric phenomena (the Big Bang and quark interactions) of vastly different scale lengths, and they hold out the hope that despite the disparities, there are themes in physics that can help us understand both, that apply to both--a beguiling way of drawing the student into a study of modern physics. Very cool."
"You have done a good job of coordinating the specific problem-solving hints with the general problem-solving hints…Context 1, Alternative-Fuel Vehicles: this is written well, it is interesting, and it introduces the concept of energy as the central theme for the next seven chapters. Did I mention that I like it?"
