Classical Mechanics Summary

Classical Mechanics: The Theoretical Minimum by George Hrabovsky

'Beautifully clear explanations of famously difficult things ... It almost makes you think you could have been a Newton yourself' John Gribbin

Here is the ultimate master class in modern physics. 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 (including essential equations and maths), the authors cover the minimum that readers should master. They introduce the key concepts of modern physics, from classical mechanics to general relativity to quantum theory, and provide a practical toolkit that you won't find in any other popular science book.

'A good and noble book' Sunday Times

'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

'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
