Shelves: textbooks This textbook is a very thorough overview of basic physics; it covers a lot of ground and has a great many review questions at the end of each chapter for the student to use to measure their understanding of the material. It is, therefore, a perfectly adequate and possibly even better-than-adequate text for the subject. It does not, however, make much of any effort to resist devolving into impenetrable jargon after the first few chapters, so it becomes progressively more difficult to follow as i This textbook is a very thorough overview of basic physics; it covers a lot of ground and has a great many review questions at the end of each chapter for the student to use to measure their understanding of the material. It does not, however, make much of any effort to resist devolving into impenetrable jargon after the first few chapters, so it becomes progressively more difficult to follow as it moves along. I would only rate a text 5 stars if it actually made an effort to be accessable to a student who was not prepared to deal with specialized terminology after being told once what the term meant.

This is followed in order by a consideration of the various ways in which a patent or the application therefore may be invalidated or anticipated on the ground of lack of novelty; priority of invention; originality; questions of breadth and scope of chemical claims t h a t are so drawn as to cover groups or families of chemical compounds or substances; functional claims, wherein it is noted t h a t there is no set form of words t h a t confers functionality upon a claim; the large class of inventions involving the use of a machine or article or composition of matter; double patenting; reissues; disclaimers; patent application and prosecution; interferences; infringement; liability for infringement; the various incidents of licenses; ownership and shoprights; trade secrets; principal features of patent litigation and searches.
The author continually refers to various decisions, of which there are a large number, to illustrate 'present day opinion. In the back of the book there is a table of cases and a subject index. The work is a combination of good presentation, an expert knowledge of the subject, and an exhaustive search for pertinent cases which were analyzed and classified.
Much attention and thought has been given in recent years toward a more effective presentation of physics in the classroom. As a result a great deal of drudgery has been removed and a higher percentage of students survive. There is still room for improvement however and the book at hand is a late model of injecting interest via cleverly using practical every-day illustrations of things which are of common interest.
Thus, in the beginning on the subject of mechanics the author has dealt with the motions and energies of bodies large enough to be seen--with baseballs, cannonballs and automobiles. There are considered some of the fundamental laws of physics, among which is the conservation of energy and of momentum. Following this, in the usual order, molecular physics and heat are taken up, dealing with particles too small to be glimpsed even through the most powerful microscope.
This is in contrast to the earlier part of the book. Here too, the idea of every-day illustrations is used. Part i of this book, which is intended to be used in conjunction with a theoretical text-book, aims at giving such a general sketch in which new knowledge is incorporated as an essential part of the course.
Part 2 comprises a course of laboratory work suitable for general purposes. In an interesting preface Mr.
Southerns has some suggestive observations as to the methods of dividing students into classes, with the view of allowing the better students to undertake more advanced work. Such subdivision is advocated in connexion with both tutorial and practical work.
The book has been well thought out, and may be recommended to teachers who have similar problems to solve. London: Methuen and Co.
