My reading, however, of this book says that the reader should be somewhat aware of some physics and certainly aware of algebra and trigonometry. Although the examples show the importance of problem setup, it does so with abbreviated steps with worked out forms of a solution. I would rather have seen or be shown the work steps that arrive at the solution in its entirety for such a novice introduction.
I will say the author does well at explanatory message on how the forces and fields affect vector level computations, but does not say why the fields or forces are related to even Newtons laws. Some level of trust is assumed by the reader.
Content is actually and ironically good reading.
Book arrived on time and in perfect condition.
Further, Just Enough Physics actually includes directions on basic VPython programming for simple physics simulations... if you're like me and have been reticent to dive into simulation and programming, this text provides several code snippets with clear explanations that entice you to see what you can do by way of numerical simulation and computer modeling.
As a high physics teacher and engineering professor, I highly recommend this book for beginning physics students of any age.

My apologies to the author as your book is otherwise excellent. However, the typesetting ruins it for me.
Don't waste your money on this otherwise fine book.
