A Wall Street Journal Best Book of 2013 A world-class physicist and a citizen scientist combine forces to teach Physics 101--the DIY way The Theoretical Minimum is a book for anyone who has ever regretted not taking physics in college--or who simply wants to know how to think like a physicist. In this unconventional introduction, physicist Leonard Susskind and hacker-scientist George Hrabovsky offer a first course in physics and associated math for the ardent amateur. Unlike most popular physics books--which give readers a taste of what physicists know but shy away from equations or math--Susskind and Hrabovsky actually teach the skills you need to do physics, beginning with classical mechanics, yourself. Based on Susskind's enormously popular Stanford University-based (and YouTube-featured) continuing-education course, the authors cover the minimum--the theoretical minimum of the title--that readers need to master to study more advanced topics. An alternative to the conventional go-to-college method, The Theoretical Minimum provides a tool kit for amateur scientists to learn physics at their own pace.

Summary: Wall Street Journal "So what do you do if you enjoyed science at school or college but ended up with a different career and are still wondering what makes the universe tick'. Leonard Susskind and George Hrabovsky's The Theoretical Minimum is the book for you. In this neat little book the authors aim to provide the minimum amount of knowledge you need about classical physics.to gain some real understanding of the world. They do so with great success. Along the way you get beautifully clear explanations of famously 'difficult' things like differential and integral calculus, conservation laws and what physicists mean by symmetries. Messrs. Susskind and Hrabovsky's book is a powerful exposition of why science is 'real' and a counter to the kind of wishful thinking employed by people who, for whatever reason, reject the scientific worldview." Sean Carroll, physicist, California Institute of Technology, and author of The Particle at the End of the Universe "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. It gets directly to the important points, with nuggets of deep insight scattered along the way. I'm going to be recommending this book right and left.".
