The Theoretical Minimum, Released today, January 29th 2013
I have absolutely no idea. I suppose it is related to the fact that I have no degrees, but I do physics anyways. In fact, that is the whole point of the book and those to follow; you can do theoretical physics so long as you have studied and mastered the ideas and techniques.

I found a couple of things so far:
p9: 3 lines up from the bottom, the sentence says: There is evan ... which I think you mean "even"
p20: it would help to explicitly label the arc saying its length = radius or to use some small countable tick like five on the radius and five on the arc. It confused me for a moment.
p24: R vector in the diagram lines up with the bounding box edge and the X axis which breaks the 3D effect you were trying for.
p28: exercise #4 has an unnecessary hyphen in the word mag- nitude probably due to some typesetting issue with using a box frame around the text.

Okay I got a little further along in the book when I finally caught the joke.
The opening of each lecture is a dialog between George and Lenny which I took to mean the two main character in Of Mice and Men by Steinbeck:
but then I realized that they were references to the two authors.
So my next thought is:
I sure hope George doesn't

No worries, it is loosely based on Steinbeck, but the real Lenny needs no help in the physics from me...
