The book was written in an comprehensive way. No matter you 're a newcomer to physics or you already have some basis on general physics, the writers always give a careful and detailed desription on how they arrive at the results, and what assumptions they've made, so that you'll get a correct picture and understanding of the topic. Unlike some other textbooks, this book functions as a bridge for me to the more advanced physics courses, without much difficulties arised.
To improve the text, my idea is to introduce vector calculus in the E&M part, since it's essential for further studies on the topic.
I haven't felt that problem with this book, and I also find the information very accessible even though it is quite advanced for an intro course, and my major is actually Computer Science.
I can only say that the 1966 was excellent and in the hands of quality professors and students willing to work, it was a wonderful intro to physics.
