3.0 von 5 Sternen The Most Pedantic Text in Physics, 5. Juli 2000
This is the most meticulously pedantic text I have ever seen. It is its greatest virtue and its greatest vice. This book is almost perfectly correct and, to the best of my knowledge, has no typos. It covers Classical Electrodynamics more fully than any other text, especially if one pays attention to the problems in the end of each chapter. And all this makes it absolutely impossible to read.
I would suggest that one use Purcell. Yes, it is a freshman book. However, it really has everything a physicist will ever need in Electromagnetism. Most importantly, unlike Jackson, it gives physical context to the mathematics. And if one ever needs more, one can use Jackson as a great, invariably correct, reference.

2.0 von 5 Sternen New Age, 30. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Alchemist, Engl. ed. (Taschenbuch)
Sprituality is en vogue. Especially, if it is coming from the Orient. Yoga, meditation, "feng-shui" make frequent appearences in "Cosmopolitan", "Starbucks" proudly sells "herbal infusions" under exotic names, and postcard haikus are full of melancholy but elevating meaning. This book is at the very pinnacle of this culture. It is simply brilliant in its relation to the contemporary soul-searcher: it is written in accessible language and printed in a large font, its length does not go beyond the attention span of the reader, and the number of thoughts does not overstrain his busy mind. For this, I have to raise the rating of the book from the one star I would give it otherwise.
