Reviews

"The topics that you expect to be here are here, and in addition you will find many features that will be a pleasant surprise. I strongly recommend this text for the introductory second-semester calculus-based physics course..." John L. Hubisz, Column Editor, North Carolina State University "There is a wealth of interesting and useful information, from the history of the science of electricity and magnetism, to connections with real world phenomena in science, engineering, and biology, to common sense advice and insight on the intuitive understanding of electrical and magnetic phenomena." Carl Patton, Professor of Physics, Colorado State University "The emphasis on the relationship between equations (mathematics) and physics is very strong. The style of writing is informal and invites the reader to stop and think. The illustrations anticipate students' questions and add to the clarity of the text's explanations." Prof. Mike Solokoff, U. Cincinatti "[The text] is exceptionally well written. Its format is modern and user-friendly. It emphasizes on physical concepts, analyzes the electromagnetic aspects of many everyday phenomena, and guides the readers carefully through mathematical derivations. Saslow's book will be a welcome addition both as a text book and as a reference book in the area of electromagnetism." Khondar Karim, Illinois State University
