He achieves a rare clarity. Throughout, he shows an unusual and sympathetic appreciation of the problems faced by the beginning student. The topics are very clearly explained with a lot of detail and clear illustrations. This book is definitely much better than the books I have read on this topic, and I would recommend it to any instructor who plans to teach a course on special relativity.

Describing the most accessible of the 20th-century revolutions, it also illustrates the fact that nature is stranger than one imagines. The book evolved through years of teaching a highly-successful course to thousands of first-year students in science and engineering. It is appropriate as part of an introductory physics course, as a supplement to a "modern physics" course, as a text for a special topics or advanced placement course, or even as a supplement in an advanced undergraduate course.

Numerous illustrations, examples, and problems are presented throughout, with the concise mathematical description postponed until after the reader has built up some physical intuition for what is going on.

The book contains many applications, from particle decays, colliding-beam experiments and photon rockets to a brief introduction to relativistic gravitation, including the Principle of Equivalence, the effect of altitude on clocks, and the Global Positioning System.

Ten appendices can be taken up as interest and time allow, including The "Cosmic Speed Limit. A detailed Solutions Manual is available for adopting professors. Ancillaries An online Instructor's Manual is available exclusively for adopting professors. About the Author Thomas M. He received his B. He has published more than 40 research papers, many with undergraduate coauthors, in quantum mechanics and general relativity. He has taught a wide variety of undergraduate courses, from beginning to advanced, in classical mechanics, special and general relativity, quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, and electromagnetism.

He has also served as director of the freshman division, chair of the physics department, chair of the faculty, and dean of faculty.
