I used this book while studying physics in high school. A short and concise book for getting intuition on vector calculus as a tool for physics. And the reason is that most of them are trivial.
I’ll have to go back through to do a more careful rereading and work some of the problems, but it’s a pretty wonderful guide dif the topic of multivariable calculus. I really dig it. Although the author has justified the existence of the 4th edition largely due to the ins This book is all about intuition rather than rigor.
It’s well written, gead times funny, and easy to follow. Exercises at the end of each chapter are a must. While the small size makes for a quick and easy read, it certainly would not hurt if cuel next edition was bumped up to pages. Multi variable calculus would be helpful too, I found to be able to compensate using a search engine. All one needs is a semester of calc, and this book. Nov 25, Teressa marked it as to-read.
Sep 10, Travis Johnson rated it it was amazing. Non-rigorous derivations that are so intuitive that it will be easy for everyone to reproduce them and actually really understand the basic ideas behind them. Good start before entering vurl fledged mathematical formulation of electromagnetism.
Readers just need to know some basic calculus and a glimpse of multivariable calculus to understand it all. Sep 27, Rakibullah Sazib rated it really liked it.

culr Almost always they make you go back to the text of the chapter for a second read. A decent understanding of trigonometry and single variable calculus are mandatory prerequisites.
Want to Read saving…. Although the author has justified the existence of the 4th edition largely due to the insertion of more examples, I still think that they are not enough.

DIV, Grad, Curl, and All That: An Informal Text on Vector Calculus
Mar 30, sqrt2 rated it it was amazing. I give it a 4-star rating because while it has many very good points that differentiate it from other books on Vector Calculus, it also has some restrictions.
Thanks for telling us about the problem. Horrible description of surface integrals.

Exercises are more difficult as chapters progress. As a second point, I will say that applications to other subjects would have been a pleasant and welcome change from the many applications to electromagnetism. The exercises represent a good range of difficulty, and the informal style of writing makes the concepts easy to grasp in the absence of classroom instruction.
Jun 13, Mostafa Alkady rated vrad it was amazing.
Very unclear derivations at times and very big logical steps missing. Sahil rated it it was amazing Gead 16, Arc rated it really liked it Jun 25, It also helps build intuitions for calculus courses which are more rigorous, since the author specifies in what sense he is being “sloppy” by stating what are needed to make some arguments work in rigorous manner. Confusing unclear derivation of the gradient. One of the most unhelpful physics books i’ve read.
Since the publication of the First Edition over thirty years ago, Div, Grad, Curl, and All That has been widely renowned for its clear and concise coverage of vector calculus, helping science and engineering students gain a thorough understanding of gradient, curl, and Laplacian operators without required knowledge of advanced mathematics.
It makes me wonder why people bother searching for enlightenment in ancient tomes.
