View larger. In Conceptual Physics, Eleventh Edition Paul Hewitt shows how a compelling text and the most advanced media can be integrated to empower professors as they bring physics to life for non-science majors, both in and out of class. For the Eleventh Edition , Hewitt helps students connect physics to their everyday experiences and the world around them, and provides additional help on solving mathematical problems. With this strong foundation, students are better equipped to understand the equations and formulas of physics, and are motivated to explore the thought-provoking exercises and fun projects in each chapter. The new edition features a fresh new design, content that is more focused on physics applications, and updated pedagogical features. About Science.

For those who say it doesn't deal with the math part of Physics, it actually does. What it doesn't do is touch on Calculus - Algebra and trig is as far as it goes. Note that the title says "conceptual physics". That's exactly what it focuses on the most. For example, when working with the mechanics section you're going to be learning about the concept behind different forces how they are related to acceleration for example.
You WILL learn the math behind most of it, but nothing too in depth. I'm using this book for my introduction course. Obviously is you took a physics course for science, engineering, or math majors you would never use this book. Don't let the fact that many others don't understand that push you away. In short, if you're completely new to physics, I think this is a great book. If you've already been introduced to this stuff i.
All in all, I have to give it 5 stars because it does what it is supposed to do - conceptualizes physics. I am physics teacher and in my view of thinking this book is a "must have".
It is not a huge handbook with formulas, it focuses on physics ideas and principles in a good way to work up the intuition. Besides, we find an interesting problems collection at the end of each chapter. A remarkable way to introduce physics.
This book provides a well written explanation of all the science and math without having to do any word problems. Everything from sound waves to Einstein's Theory on Relativity are explained in such a way that I could competently hold a conversation with some one I highly recommend it to any high school-er trying to understand their physic class or non-science majors taking physics as a science credit. The best book on conceptual physics out there. And it's not just my opinion -- I got recommendations from two physics professors when looking for a book for my son.
This one is much better than his school uses. Clear and logical. Good illustrations. This book was written by Paul Hewitt sign painter, artist, cartoonist, physicist, and probably 10 other hats and is great for people afraid of Physics, first timers, old hands, and people who are forced to take physics in an educational program whether they like it or not. His illustrations are fun. His interactive videos on the companion website are fun to watch.
The workbook exercises are fun. Hewitt's whole emphasis is on helping you learn Physics AND to get you at ease or even excited about the subject.
I find the whole book easy to read. The exercises aggregate your knowledge so you can self-diagnose and review at the point where you start to get concepts wrong.
I dreaded Physics when I purchased this, but now I love cracking the book open and studying it. I won't be reselling this textbook. It'll stay on my shelf. One of the best descriptions of physics from a conceptual point of view that I have read.
Clear tone, good examples. You walk away understanding rather than just memorizing facts. I will be using this for references for advanced physics courses just to remember what I am mathing about.
One person found this helpful. A great option for school when you are trying to save money. The book was in great shape and provided all I needed for my spring class. I recommend Amazon's book rental if and when available. It is an educational cost effective option for most classes.
Paul Hewitt is a great teacher of physics. He concentrates on concepts and not so much the heavy mathematical understanding and application. So the material is interesting and accessible for general reader Paul started college late and I think he obtained a D in his first physics course. He grew into an award winning teacher and textbook author. I love his videos. See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews.

Conceptual Physics, 11th Edition
In Conceptual Physics, Eleventh Edition Paul Hewitt shows how a compelling book and the most advanced media can be integrated to empower professors as they bring physics to life for non-science majors, both in and out of class. The new edition features a fresh new design, content that is more focused on physics applications, and updated pedagogical features. Former silver-medal boxing champion, sign painter, uranium prospector, and soldier, Paul began college at the age of 27, with the help of the GI Bill. He pioneered the conceptual approach to teaching physics at the City College of San Francisco. He has taught as a guest teacher at various middle schools and high schools, the University of California at both the Berkeley and Santa Cruz campuses, and the University of Hawaii at both the Manoa and Hilo campuses.
