The Motion Mountain website offers six free physics textbooks. I have a background in Chemistry and wanted to learn more about physics and these textbooks seemed well written with a passion for the subject as well as being filled with interesting background and other information.
I understand the author, Christoph Schiller, has some very speculative views on advanced physics subjects - although this seems pretty clear from the title of his final volume "A Speculation on Unification" where he talks about his Strand Model.
My question is has anyone read these textbooks and would they be in a position to comment on their accuracy at least for the earlier volumes? The books are so interestingly written and with my background based on the little I know I couldn't tell whether it was good physics or not.
I guess I can cross check these works with standard physics text books - but honestly most physics textbooks are very dry in comparison and at the very least Christoph Shiller is making the subject genuinely interesting to read about for the lay reader.
Has anyone seen these books and would anyone be able to comment on these books and the correctness of the physics (not just the advanced topics but the earlier basic materials)
