This textbook presents a basic course in physics to teach mechanics, mechanical properties of matter, thermal properties of matter, elementary thermodynamics, electrodynamics, electricity, magnetism, light and optics and sound. It includes simple mathematical approaches to each physical principle, and all examples and exercises are selected carefully to reinforce each chapter. In addition, answers to all exercises are included that should ultimately help solidify the concepts in the minds of the students and increase their confidence in the subject. Many boxed features are used to separate the examples from the text and to highlight some important physical outcomes and rules. The appendices are chosen in such a way that all basic simple conversion factors, basic rules and formulas, basic rules of differentiation and integration can be viewed quickly, helping student to understand the elementary mathematical steps used for solving the examples and exercises.

Instructors teaching form this textbook will be able to gain online access to the solutions manual which provides step-by-step solutions to all exercises contained in the book. The solutions manual also contains many tips, coloured illustrations, and explanations on how the solutions were derived.

From the book reviews:
“The book follows the basic organization of an introductory physics course and covers all of the topics with sufficient depth … . The book contains all the essentials, showing different applications for varied laws of physics and introducing the working principles of some of the instruments that students might work with in a physics lab. … a textbook to read before a lecture on a specific topic, as the student can familiarize himself with the definitions and mathematics used.” (Kadri Tinn, AstroMadness.com, August, 2014)“I recommend this book to people who need easy and direct access to a wide spectrum of physics theories to apply practically in their professional life. This is a very well written text book. I love the colorful diagrams and illustrations. I would highly recommend this book for any respectful universities and colleges. Students would invest once in this book and use it in multiple courses.” (Philosophy, Religion and Science Book Reviews, bookinspections.wordpress.com, March, 2014)
