"It is a matter for celebration when two illustrious theoreticians such as Kip Thorne and Roger Blandford provide an in-depth description of the fundamentals of classical physics. . . . The sheer amount of material covered and the effort that has gone into condensing it into a single, beautifully produced volume is extraordinarily impressive."---Malcolm Longair, Nature
"A tour through macroscopic physics that features modern treatments of classical topics and insightful treatments of modern ones. . . . Modern Classical Physics is a magnificent achievement."---Edward Witten, Physics Today
"An excellent tool for students and researchers as an introduction to classical subjects usually missing from most modern physics curricula. . . . A valuable reference for physicists about modern approaches of the development and applications of classical physics."---Miguel A. F. Sanjuan, Contemporary Physics
