User Review - Kohl Gill - GoodreadsEven though I'm no longer a practicing physicist, I still have Schiff's text on my shelf, up there with Jackson's Classical Electrodynamics, Apostol's Calculus, and Ramond's Field Theory. It was the first physics textbook that distracted me from my problem sets in a good way. Read full review
