Reading Panofsky and Philips again, the things that seemed obscure at when I was a grad student turned out to be the things I had worked out while making notes on Griffiths as a professor. The discussion is deeper though and goes into more detail with references to the literature that are really helpful and always motivated by the physics. Where Jackson is just opaque and obscure the discussions of difficulties here are logical and clear. It could use more examples and problems. The units are MKS which is helpful if you learned from Griffiths. Really outstanding text though I would supplement it with a problem book to get the full benefit.
Unlike Jackson's book that promises to prepare the reader to handle research problems in theoretical physics by teaching the necessary mathematical methods, Panofsky and Phillips focus on electromagnetism alone and do a wonderful job.
I think this is a good graduate level book and if read with its contemporaries like Stratton's Electromagnetic Theory or Smythe's Static and Dynamic Electricity, it can provide a formidable foundation in the subject.
It is surely the best graduate level book on Electromagnetism I have ever read.
The author manages to achieve a very good balance between physics and mathematics.
Some things that are not clear (and indeed look like very tricky) in other books, here appear naturally and in a very logical and clear way.
The explanations are very insighful and offer you very interesting connections whithin the EM Theory.
Definitely, it is an excellent book, and in my opinion, it deserves to be the standard graduate EM text more than others that currently have this consideration.

I may have read an earlier edition. It was 1965 and I was only studying part time at NSW after having failed Applied Maths III (higher) the year before. Read morePublished on May 18, 2013 by richard mullins
The best EM book money can buy. This book is easy to read and has the right balance between physics and mathematical derivation.Published on December 3, 2012 by MAK
