From the Publisher:

Fishbane/Gasiorowicz/Thornton is a comprehensive introduction to calculus- based physics. The most successful first-edition physics text of the last decade, it is the only book written specifically to address the main issue in this course--namely, balancing the needs and wants of the students with those of the instructor. The authors, experienced researchers and teachers, represent both theoretical and experimental physicists. This text presents balance between theory and applications, between concepts and problem-solving, between mathematics and physics, and finally, between technology and traditional pedagogical methods. Appropriate for both scientists and engineers with increased applications for engineering students.

From the Back Cover:

Designed to give readers a solid foundation in the core science of all science and technology, this book clearly explains and illustrates the principles of physics, their relations, and their applications. The book covers the modern notions of physics from the beginning, including the essential aspects of classical physics; explores spatial relativity and quantum mechanics; provides problem-solving techniques that offer new ways of looking at various problems in physics; helps readers develop the ability to effectively estimate; and more. The Interactive Physics Player, Macintosh/Windows-based software that recreates selected problems from the book, is available for an additional fee. Suitable for prospective engineers, scientists, doctors, and others who use technology in their careers.
