Review:

"Beautifully clear explanations of famously 'difficult things.'"―Wall Street Journal

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

"A spectacular effort to make the real stuff of theoretical physics accessible to amateurs."―Science News

"Very readable. Abstract concepts are well explained.... [The Theoretical Minimum] does provide a clear description of advanced classical physics concepts, and gives readers who want a challenge the opportunity to exercise their brain in new ways."―Physics World

"Readers ready to embrace their inner applied mathematics will enjoy this brisk, bare-bares introduction to classical mechanics."―Publishers Weekly
