# My Book “Physics From Symmetry” has been published!

Update 10.4.16:
Almost one year after its publication it’s time for a small recap. On the downside, the book has made me neither rich nor famous so far ;). However there are some things that make me particularly happy:

• Rutwig Campoamor Stursberg has published a summary and review, in which he writes about Physics from Symmetry:  “As a first contact text it is remarkably well written and motivated, and constitutes a very good preparation for the study of the hard formalism of more advanced books. […] Summarizing […] this book describes rather well the not always easy to understand subject of symmetry methods in physics, and will be a valuable addition to the bibliography for any interested reader, and even for the expert, with an alternative point of view.”
• Peter Rabinovitch has written a very positive review for the Mathematical Association of America.
• The reviews at Amazon.com are almost exlusively positive and include:
• This book should be a must for every science and math undergraduate.
• “Undergraduates, today and in the future, are so lucky to have this book. It’s the book I wish I had as an undergraduate, it would have saved a lot of time and misplaced effort.”
• This is the book I’ve been looking for all these years. […] Overall, an excellent, almost magical, text covering all the major areas of physics in an accessible manner. Highly recommended!
• A perfect Peskin preface
• Similarly at Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.de:
• “A superb book. The future approach for undergraduate physics.”
• “Really helped me understand what was going on in my undergraduate degree. […] recommended for everyone to read”
• “Ausgesprochen zu empfehlen für alle Physikstudenten” (which translates to “Highly recommended for all students of physics“)
• Physics from Symmetry is among the recommended literature for the lecture “Symmetry Groups in Physics” at the university of Hamburg.
• I’ve received hundreds of emails from readers all around the world who reported errors, had questions or simply wanted to say that they liked the book. I enjoyed every single one of them, because it reminds me that people actually read what I’ve written. Always feel free to write me at mail |at| jakobschwichtenberg.com.
• There will be a German version of Physics from Symmetry by Springer Spektrum and the plan is that it gets published next year.

So, all in all the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and I want to say thanks to everyone who took the time to write a few words!

After almost 18 month of hard work* my book has finally been published by Springer. Thanks to everyone who helped make the manuscript better and the team at Springer for their patience.
