From the reviews of the second edition:
"Strength of this book's treatment is that atoms are used to link ... branches of physics, enabling undergraduates to develop a more coherent understanding of the field. ... a helpful summary of the material covered, longer problems are given at the end of each chapter. ... The layout is clear and contains many illustrative figures. ... I recommended this book as a brave attempt to inject modern physics into the very start of undergraduate life. ... First-year undergraduates or advanced A-level students seeking extra material." (Times Higher Education, May, 2011)
"Holbrow and colleagues (all, Colgate Univ.) designed this book ... for the first course of an innovative three-semester introductory physics sequence at Colgate. ... serves to introduce students to contemporary physics quickly. ... Even experienced faculty will gain valuable classroom insight from the presentation ... . a physics textbook for majors, many general readers with a high school background in math and physics would find it an accessible introduction to these topics. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates, advanced high school students, and general readers." (J. R. Burciaga, Choice, Vol. 48 (9), May, 2011)
