"… an introduction to the central concepts of dynamics and special relativity … . Having a dual exploration of the two under one cover offers the rare opportunity for entry-level college physics students to understand their relationships, with mathematics backing the examples and exercises paired to better understand the concepts. The result is an approach more accessible to newcomers than most, and important for anyone studying dynamics and relativity."
―Midwest Book Review, April 2015
"This book consists of two parts: one on classical Newtonian dynamics and one on Einstein’s special relativity theory. It is a refreshingly well-written book composed in a nice style but with due attention paid to precision. … [the] first part constitutes an excellent introduction to classical mechanics. The second part of the book is equally good and consists of three chapters on special relativity. … Throughout the book, many examples are given and many exercises are set (and solutions supplied at the end of the book). At several places, interesting historical remarks are made and which I believe are important for a full understanding of the ideas involved. This book is a welcome addition to the literature on this subject. It is well written in a most readable style and is a comprehensive introduction to classical and relativistic mechanics."
―Professor Graham Hall FRSE FRAS, Institute of Mathematics, University of Aberdeen
