Summary 
This is a “minimalist” textbook for a first semester of university, calculusbased physics, covering classical mechanics (including one chapter on mechanical waves, but excluding fluids), plus a brief introduction to thermodynamics. The presentation owes much to Mazur’s The Principles and Practice of Physics: conservation laws, momentum and energy, are introduced before forces, and onedimensional setups are thoroughly explored before twodimensional systems are considered. It contains both problems and workedout examples
