A great first try ...

The Physics textbook appears to be comprehensive for high school usage. It contains the Physics topics and covers them at a bit below the math skills level that I would expect; however, it is difficult to write a book used at a 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade peel without scaling the math skills down to include all four levels.

My personal dislike and also of others that have reviewed the textbooks thus far is with the constant scrolling through text instead of the use of a normal page turning paradigm. Frankly, it detracts significantly from the look and feel of a book, textbook or otherwise.

Fix the paging issue and I will stand up and call this a winner.

Addition ...

These books take up way too much storage space averaging between 1 and 1.5 Gb. There are also a great deal of issue trying to remove the copy by deselecting it in iTunes. Every time the iPad synced, ITunes would turn the selection back on and would remove the book.

Proper editing is important In physics

Text quizzes are riddled with errors. Unacceptable in science education. This book should be pulled immediately until some one who understands,physics can edit the book.

Update: the new revision is a much better book. There are still errors, however, this time it took until the first standardized test problem to find one....
