Chuck Yeung - professor of physics, Penn State Erie, The Behrend College

Book Title: Electricity and Magnetism

Author: Edward M. Purcell

Book Description:

Purcell's textbook was instrumental in helping me understand how physicists think. His work is truly inspirational in that it allowed me to understand the importance of obtaining both a physically intuitive and rigorous mathematical understanding of physical phenomenon. Purcell's love for physics is also obvious and partially absorbed by the reader throughout the book. If not for this textbook, I might have changed fields in my sophomore year.
