Great book to learn basic and intermediate physics

I quite liked this book. It is still on my shelf and I intend to keep it.

It is written in very systematic way.

Have you ever wondered: "Why do we use this formula?", or "Where did he get that from?"

Well, for someone like me, it used to happen all the time, because I like to understand what I learn and I dislike learning by heart, so I asked myself lots of questions. But, when I started reading this book, answers to such questions came up in minutes.

I like the explanations of difficult phenomenon and I like the approach that author takes: he does make some approximations when analyzing some phenomenon, but he doesn't hide them. He states the approximations and explains them.

I used this book when I was preparing for the International Physics Olympiad and I think it is great.

You make your choice.

PS: Some of my friends also use this book, and as far as I know, they are very satisfied with it...
