|Great book for those wanting to learn Physics Feb 6, 2007|
|I bought this book for my High School daughter, to prepare her for her physics class. It's an excellent starting point for physics, covers most of the basics. While her teacher spends most of his time lecturing against our President and the war in Iraq, my daughter has learned more from this book than in the classroom. It's laid out much better and covers more than her school textbook. Highest recommendation!|
