Abstract:

A world-class physicist and a citizen scientist combine forces to teach Physics 101?the DIY wayThe Theoretical Minimum is a book for anyone who has ever regretted not taking physics in college?or who simply wants to know how to think like a physicist. In this unconventional introduction, physicist Leonard Susskind and hacker-scientist George Hrabovsky offer a first course in physics and associated math for the ardent amateur. Unlike most popular physics books?which give readers a taste of what physicists know but shy away from equations or math?Susskind and Hrabovsky.
