Reviews - What do customers think about Encyclopedia of Physics?

A wonderful reference to have  Jan 31, 2005

This book is awesome! There are so many things in physics that one can learn. This encyclopedia of physics will give you clear explanations of almost everything in physics. This is a truly wonderful book to have. I highly recommend it!
Good reference - great authors  Aug 6, 2001
This publication provides a very useful reference for many areas of physics. The bibliographies at the end of each section serve as a starting point for further research in the particular subject.

The contributing authors of this book are impressive, e.g. J.D. Jackson (Classical Electrodynamics), H. Goldstein (Analytical Dynamics), E.C.G. Sudarshan, etc.

A Complete Course in Physics  Jun 6, 2000
Most comprehensive text on physics seen to date. Excellent reference on virtually any area of physics. Deffinitely not an introductory text, but intended for those with a fairly solid background in mathematics and physics, ie. scientists, engineers or the very serious amateur. Plentiful photos, charts, diagrams and supporting reference material. A must for anyone employed in this field or with a keen interest in physics.
