The third volume in the bestselling physics series cracks open Einstein's special relativity and field theory
Physicist Leonard Susskind and data engineer Art Friedman are back. This time, they introduce readers to Einstein's special relativity and Maxwell's classical field theory. Using their typical brand of real math, enlightening drawings, and humor, Susskind and Friedman walk us through the complexities of waves, forces, and particles by exploring special relativity and electromagnetism. It's a mustread for both devotees of the series and any armchair physicist who wants to improve their knowledge of physics' deepest truths.

"A true masterpiece that will stand the test of time. I only wish this book was around when I was learning classical physics. Special Relativity and Classical Field Theory was joyful to read, filled with insights and secrets that will prepare you for research." Stephon AlexanderStephon Alexander, , cosmologist at Brown University and author of The Jazz of Physics "Relativity and field theory are absolutely central to modern physics. Here they are explained masterfully, with insight and wit. This is physics the way it's really done, in all its glory, nothing swept under the rug." Sean Carroll, author of The Big Picture: On the Origins of Life, Meaning, and the Universe Itself "Susskind and Friedman follow their collaboration on Quantum Mechanics by probing the mathematical nittygritty of field theory and Einstein's theory of special relativity in the third installment of the Theoretical Minimum series...Enthusiastic discussion is seasoned with wry humor....Well paced.... Clear and concise." Publishers Weekly "Susskind is meticulous in explaining each step of applying the equations to the physical phenomena he describes, and he excels in explaining why the math works the way it does.... If you're intrepid enough...you'll emerge with a much deeper appreciation for the true meaning of Einstein's relativity, Maxwell's equations and many other aspects of fundamental physics."Science News "Thrilling...Susskind's approach is to subject the novice to a historical mathematical boot camp to make the path seem natural, and ultimately easier...At once witty and insightful."Nature 此文字指其他 kindle_edition 版本。

If you do not have the background it may be very frustrating.

To enjoy this book a basic foundation is required in partial differential equations, wave theory, tensors, and Maxwell's equations. This is obviously a small audience. If you have a background in these areas, this book is an enjoyable read. It ties together electromagnetism, special relativity, and tensor math. Susskind's presentation of basic tensor math is way too brief. He does have many excellent teaching points, but if you do not have the basics down he does skip steps. If you do not know some basics of tensor math and manipulation, you are not going to learn it here. If you are interested in this learning this material and do not have that background I would suggest Fleish's "A Student's Guide to Vectors and Tensors, Fleish's "A Student's Guide to Maxwell's Equations", Fleisch's and Kinnaman's "A Student's Guide to Waves".All three books have multiple solved problems on the publisher's website that should give you the background to make this book an easier read.. Bernacchi's "Tensors Made Easy", has had mixed reviews but I found the solved problems very useful. As mentioned by other reviewers, you will need to understand Lagrangians which are covered in the first book in this series. The solved problems for this text are not available on the web. This is a major problem with this publisher. In this day of rampant viruses, you should not have to surf the web to find solved problems. This series is not written as textbooks. Many of us do not have teaching assistants to check our work and help us. If you have the background this book may be useful. If you do not have the background it may be very frustrating.

This is the three book in the series I have read. The first book set up a lot of the mathematical machinery used here, namely the Lagrangian and the Hamiltonian along with conservation laws and symmetries.
I struggled a bit with the second book on quantum mechanics  have to go back and have another crack at that one.
But this one was REALLY good. The setup of the book was so logical and the mathematical development was so well paced that I could feel much greater mathematical sophistication that helped me to anticipate many of the subsequent developments. Now, I will not say that I could erase all the equations and mathematical reasoning segments from the book, and as an exercise, recreate them from memory, calculation, and my own reasoning, but I will say that if you go over the material at a comfortable pace and are willing to look back a chapter or two or three to remind yourself of some key detail, you will be very well rewarded with a view into special relativity, electrodynamics, and classical field theory.
Now back to Quantum.
I cannot wait for General Relativity to come out. Chapter 11 seemed like almost like a cliffhanger to change gears into gravitational field theory.
In your reference frame, take the time to read this book. As for general relativity, when it comes out, You Bet Your Life I will read that one.

Excellent over view of special relativity and field theory a la Lagrange

Special Relativity and Classical Field Theory is part of Leonard Susskinds series of lectures for a nonspecialist audience but who's background is likely a STEM education. The book covers special relativity from scratch and builds up to field theory, actions and the tensor formulation of electromagnetism. It is done in plain language that can be followed by many, though without a background in the subjects it will be difficult to appreciate. The reader can also follow the lectures online as they have been made available to the public by Stanford.
I must admit I have read this book two times now, appreciating it much more the 2nd time. The material on special relativity was very approachable the first time but the field theory section, which is more of the book, was more challenging at first. The book effectively walks the reader through the subject quite casually. It is not written as a textbook but more in the spirit of the lectures as a conversation. This is great if one is familiar with the subject as you get a sense of how Susskinds framing of how to think about the topics is so inspiring for the conversation. For those less familiar, the conversation gives a false sense of mastery, which was me in my first reading. I recall finishing and then realizing I didnt really have the understanding I wanted. After spending some time learning general relativity from a textbook i revisited this. As before the special relativity was easy and clear and in this second reading the field theory portion came much more to life. Also the field theory part is really quite a highlight as it is not a topic that is readily covered in other books but it is truly essential for modern physics and formulating theories from Lagrangians. As such I realize now that one does need a stronger background to really appreciate the book, but when one is familiar with the underlying ideas, these lectures, book series are really great overviews to help imprint the knowledge steeped with valuable intuition.
Special Relativity and Classical Field theory is a readable and excellent overview of these subjects discussed in an approachable fashion not overwhelmed with technical details. It can be read by those without the strongest of backgrounds but I believe that leads to a false sense of confidence. With a reasonable background this book is an excellent supplement to more comprehensive books giving better intuition to difficult subjects than is found in dry textbooks. The special relativity portion is great to read and the field theory portion, though more difficult, is great if one has some background. Definitely recommend but I think prerequisites help and no physics background is a significant stretch.
