    You have basically saved my life. I will forever be grateful!

    Would be nice to have a suggested study order for (some of) these guides. For example, would (tensors and vectors) be good to study prior to (waves), and then either (maxwell) or (schrodinger)? And on an alternate path, possibly (lagrangian) before (analytical mechanics) before (newton) before (GR)? And would (fourier transforms) have a preferred position anywhere?

    Why could we not have had this at university 50 years ago? We had such bad teachers.

    Dan, I got your tensor book after seeing it endorsed in a footnote in a tensor book by Bernacci ("tensors made easy" as he calls it – always bold claims by authors).
    He described your work as one which left 'no dark spots' and that is well substantiated. It's the "Div Grad Curl and all that" of the 21st century.

    Tensors "pack up" everything into an elegant formalism but seldom are these results "unpacked" thoroughly so we can demonstrate to ourselves how to return to the basic equations we learned as teenagers before being handed all these "power tools" in the math world.

    While the examples in action often ride close to being beneath the dignity of a physics/engineering student, "getting dirty" is what is needed to appreciate where we came from (from a formalism standpoint). At the end of the day engineers calculate stresses on beams and physicists measure fields in waveguides after all. What good is an electromagnetic field tensor if all you can do is admire the greek subscripts on a page in Jackson?

    Among introductory autodidactic treatments, your two works (the tensor and maxwell books) have very few rivals. I for one look forward to reading your Schrodinger book soon as well.

    I bought Maxwell's Equations from Amazon and was most interested to see the entire book made available as a free PDF download a little while later. Not only that, but the book on Tensors was made equally available online, along with errata and compact resource documents. If this isn't the provision of help and incentive from an empathetic and understanding teaching corner, I haven't a clue what else could eclipse it. I have, therefore, time for Dan Fleisch.

    I am a fan of this student series. Mr. Fleisch 's approach is very appreciated. I own several books of the student guide series. One of them is Student Guide to Wave. It is very common step once you learn the vector and tensor concept and the next thing comes out with wave. As a practicing engineer in industry engineering and renewable energy, I often carry this book with me. If I have some time to spare, I would love to read the book. These books are not those "giant" textbooks, but you know they attain the ideas I normally find difficult to understand as a landscape. These ideas from either mathematics or physics become obtainable. Today's product or product being developed requires more aspects from dynamics and a cross different engineering disciplines, it is challenging but exciting. Once you have a solid understanding of these discussed topics, you will know what's going on while you are reading the MATLAB help's pages after you are delegated with a design mission.

    Kindle versions of these books, all that I’ve seen, make many of the equations too small to read, especially when indices are involved. Please have CUP fix this.

    For a long time i want to learn Maxwell equations. Accidentally discovered this video. What a lucky day. Also i wish to have a student guide for laws of thermodynamics.

    Sir, I watched your video on tensors a couple of years back. So good to see you again.

    1. You look just like an older, bald John Slattery, and also kinda talk like him.

    2. Amazing and practical insights on how to write student guides. While I'm not a candidate for that, I find it interesting because is hard to find that kind of niche "trade secrets" and tips from someone who has actual experience on it and had concrete results, for free.

    Hello Mr.Fleisch are you a German physicist or a British scientist??

    Thank you Mr. Fleisch. Your books helped me so much. So clear and elegant.

    I'm by no means a candidate to write a student's guide book on anything, but for what it's worth your book on Maxwell's Equations made getting through E&M much easier. Thank you!
