In Hecht's groundbreaking book, you'll find real-life applications, an unparalleled art and photography program, a presentation that anticipates students' questions, and an approach that emphasizes contemporary physics while interweaving historical perspectives. Hecht's coverage of classical physics is clear and insightful. He shows students how 21st-century physics illuminates the classical topics of each chapter, adding excitement to the subject matter. Over 1,300 illustrations make it possible for students to visualize a diversity of physical phenomena. Many of these are multi-frame, sequential drawings allowing students to comprehend the temporal unfolding of complex events. A selection of sketch art teaches students how to create problem-solving diagrams. This new edition of the text was designed to aggressively address the issue of problem solving for students (guided by contemporary physics education research). To this end Hecht has provided not only his approach to the five-step problem-solving framework but also a wide range of new problems and solutions specifically designed to build student capability and confidence.

Ph.D. Adelphi UniversityReview:
"I really enjoy the writing style of the author, and I think the students would appreciate it as well. It makes the physics seem much less formidable to have the discussion in a somewhat more colloquial tone (with a little infusion of humor) than is often done in physics texts. The human element of physics is also clearly present in this text, which is also a plus for the students."
"The problems and examples are excellent. This was the first thing I turned to and immediately became engaged in this book! Hecht has the ability to create truly innovative examples where other authors are jaded and copy from each other."
"The writing style is student-friendly and thought provoking. Students reading this text would certainly not be bored! The author's use of pictures, illustrations, historical notes, references, and sidelines is quite effective. Clearly intensive research was done for each section to make it as interesting and creative as possible. The text has such an interesting presentation to it. I appreciate the creativity employed. I want to especially thank the author for paying attention to historical context. I think the author did a FANTASTIC job of incorporating sketches, photographs, illustrations, and diagrams in the book. The diverse approach to artistic representation is very much appreciated by both student and instructor. The "side notes" that accompany each figure, sketch, drawing, and illustration is complete and to the point. Those explanations are concise and topic-relevant. The quality and quantity of figures in Hecht's book should be the envy of other College Physics texts."
