Product description


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. (John Gribbin Wall Street Journal)

A pleasure to read....a beautiful, high-level overview of the entire subject (Physics Today)

What 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. It gets directly to the important points, with nuggets of deep insight scattered along the way. (Sean Carroll, author of The Particle at the End of the Universe)

Book Description

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.
