The Theoretical Minimum


“Readers ready to embrace their inner applied mathematics will enjoy this brisk, bare-bones introduction to classical mechanics.”
Publishers Weekly

“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. I'm going to be recommending this book right and left.”

—Sean Carroll, physicist, California Institute of Technology, and author of The Particle at the End of the Universe
