What is Book recommendations: Definition and 108 Discussions
Citizen's Briefing Book is a compilation book of recommendations made to President Barack Obama by visitors to the Change.gov website, given to the President after his January 20, 2009 inauguration. Internet users were able to post recommendations of changes they would like to see made in the United States, and they were also able to vote on other users' recommendations, as well as participate in a comment process.
The Minnesota-based company called Magnet 360 helped develop the functionality, using technology from Salesforce.com. Co-chair of the Obama-Biden Transition Team, Valerie Jarrett, stated that the Citizen's Briefing Book was a way for the Obama transition process to remain open and transparent. Popular recommendations included ending the prohibition on marijuana use in the United States and the legalization of online poker. Citizen's Briefing Book received positive comments from writers for The Christian Science Monitor and Business Week, and criticism from writers for Chicago Tribune and Indianapolis Business Journal.
I have a thirteen-year-old daughter, and I would like to give her a book as an introduction to the world of physics. Could you recommend something you consider the best?
Unfortunately, I can't describe her as someone who is bright. I would say it's more like 'like father, like daughter.'...

Dear All,
I am interested in learning quantum mechanics for curiosity.
I know the basics from different sources and I've read the Quantum Mechanics (the theoretical minimum) book for Leonard Susskind and Art Friedman. What would you recommend as a book to further understand and learn quantum...
Hi, guys
I have posted this question on StackExchange, but no one seems to care answer. Because I don't think this is a simple textbook question, I start my thread here:
