About the book

The latest edition of the premier text for calculus-based physics course retains the basic qualities and organization of the previous edition, while incorporating important changes. The most successful elements of this book have been its emphasis of fundamentals, the careful development of problem solving skills, a good breadth of topics coverage, and clear explanations of topics.
