Sanjoy Mahajan shows us that the way to master complexity is through insight rather than precision. He first teaches the tools for organizing complexity, then distinguishes two paths for discarding complexity: with and without loss of information.

An introduction to the fundamentals and applications of all the major branches of classical physics. We shall take a journey through spacetime and phase space, through statistical and continuum mechanics, and through optics and relativity.
by Henry Crew - MacMillan
The fundamental principles of physics are covered: kinematics, simple harmonic motion, some general and special properties of matter, waves, sound, theory of heat, magnetism, electrostatics, electric currents, light, optical instruments.
