21 of 21 people found the following review helpful By John R. Thorstensen on May 23, 2007
Format: Paperback
I used this book as an undergrad many years ago in honors first-year physics (along with Purcell's excellent E&M book from the Berkeley Physics Series), and have referred to it from time to time since. It's a clear, patient, matter-of-fact introduction to the subject which takes the time to clarify many of the obscure and seemingly contradictory aspects of special relativity. It's written about at the level of the famous Halliday and Resnick university physics books. I found the book to be very useful as an introduction. If you already know the subject, and need an advanced reference, this will be too basic, but as the title says, it's an "Introduction".

This is the best introduction to Special Relativity ever. It is a standard approach (unlike Spacetime Physics by Taylor & Wheeler which also is superb), but a superb one, highly readable. I always recomend this little book to beginners.

Excellent graphics and build-up of theory. Derivation of energy equation is first-rate. Resnick has really constructed meaningful derivations of results instead of using tired arguments that only 'look' plausible.
