'This is both helpful and innovative … Fleisch's book is an excellent and challenging resource for students in this subject area.' Optics and Photonics News
'In the reviewer's experience it takes students a long time to get a feeling for what vectors and especially tensors are, and in this respect this book is very useful: it helps them become confident in using and applying these concepts … Each chapter concludes with a section of problems and, moreover, the author supplies an interactive website and a series of audio podcasts. In the reviewer's opinion this book will certainly become as popular as the author's book A Student's Guide to Maxwell's Equations which uses the same approach.' Rabe von Randow, Zentralblatt MATH
'This highly readable introductory book will be of great assistance to those taking undergraduate or graduate courses and meeting tensors for the first time.' George Matthews, Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (ima.org.uk)
Über das Produkt
Adopting the same approach used in his highly popular A Student's Guide to Maxwell's Equations, Fleisch explains vectors and tensors in plain language to give undergraduate and beginning graduate students a better understanding of how to use vectors and tensors to solve problems in physics and engineering.
Die Lieferung war sehr schnell und eigentlich überraschend: Das Paperback ist günstiger als die eBook Version... Das Buch selbst ermöglicht einen sehr einfachen Einstieg in die sonst recht komplexe Welt der Tensoren. Für jeden, der sich in diese Thematik einarbeiten will ist es ein absolutes Muss.
Ich kann jeden nur davor warnen, die Kindle-Version dieses Taschenbuchs zu kaufen. Warum ? Gerade die Vektoren und Tensoren werden praktisch unleserlich dargestellt. Auch die Diagramme sind unleserlich, weil viel zu klein. Zumindest gilt das für meine beiden Kindle Reader (1 x DX, 1 x Paperwhite). Fazit: Wer übertrieben wortreichen Text liebt und glaubt, auf Formeln und Diagramme bei so einer Thematik verzichten zu können, wird vielleicht zufrieden sein. Alle anderen: Hände weg von der miserablen Kindle-Edition. Jeder Cent dafür, ja jeder Mausklick beim Bestellvorgang ist zu viel.
Ob die Taschenbuchausgabe brauchbarer ist, kann ich nicht sagen. Ich wüsste allerdings keinen Grund, warum die optische Lesbarkeit auf Papier viel besser sein könnte.

This book surpasses any other math/physics book I have ever read. I no longer write reviews, but for this one I will. This book actually describes the "geometric" difference between co and contra variant tensors. I have never seen this done before. I spent weeks years ago trying to figure the difference(geometrically). One is upper and the other lower incidences, so what. This book would have put me so far ahead, why did someone not do it earlier. The part on vectors is great, but the tensor part is the best I have ever seen. This book is like cheating!! Instead of banging you head on the wall one hundred times, it like some putting a pillow between you and the wall and saying just bang your head once. I am finishing string theory, having already completed general relativity and quantum field theory. I know what I am talking about. I know money is tight so I would never endorse a book that wasted money. This book puts you at the graduate level fast, again this book is like cheating. For the prices and time saved now and later, I would have payed three times the price years ago.
NOTE: I did not do a chapter by chapter review because it was not needed. This book gives the geometric as well as the mathematical view.
Look at all the reviews around me. I found some errors in the book, but guess what the author already has the errors posted. I cannot say enough about this book. Also the solutions are posted online, you do not have to look at them but you will know if you did the problem right. This man really wants to teach. He also has videos on youtube to show you visually what is going on. I am finishing up string theory and I picked up a few new things from this book. If you understand what is going on geometrically you can understand what is going on. Tell your friends the geometric different between co and contra variant tensors, some graduate students do not know the geometric difference, try it.

This is the best book (or college course) I have ever run into over the past 20 years on learning tensors. The companion website is excellent too. I can't say enough good things about the book or the thanks I have for Dr. Fleisch.

I have a bachelor's degree in Aerospace Engineering but felt lacking in Vectors and Tensors as applied to more advanced subjects. This book has helped fill in the gaps and really made a difference. It really helped strengthen my foundation in a crucial subject and now I feel much more comfortable around advanced subjects using tensors. The accompanying website is also a gem with hints to homework questions and pod-casts following the chapters. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am now going to read the author's other on Maxwell's Equations for fun!

There is not a single page of this book wasted, and his technique of instruction is brilliant. The website for this book includes interative solutions, podcasts which walk you through the book, and supplemental material.
This takes the reader from the basics of vectors from notation to which forms are used for what purpose. He takes you through the basics of math operations and basic applications.
Then it really gets interesting, his diagrams and examples really drive the points home. The chapters on coordinate transformations is gold.
He lost me at tensors, but that is my lacking not his, and the physics applications he employs are great.
His conversational manner leaves the proofs at the minimum as not to distract. Eventually I will get past the Laplacian material, but until then this book got me very far.
