A master teacher presents the ultimate introduction to classical mechanics for people who are serious about learning physics

"Beautifully clear explanations of famously 'difficult' things," — Wall Street Journal

If you ever regretted not taking physics in college — or simply want to know how to think like a physicist — this is the book for you. In this bestselling introduction to classical mechanics, physicist Leonard Susskind and hacker-scientist George Hrabovsky offer a first course in physics and associated math for the ardent amateur. Challenging, lucid, and concise, The Theoretical Minimum provides a tool kit for amateur scientists to learn physics at their own pace.
