    This is a free book that seems to be aimed at the same audience as Jackson, but it's only about 1/3 the length. The layout is very professional looking, and there are quite a few figures. There is an accompanying book of exercises. The book is freely downloadable under a restrictive license.

    I helped someone recently on PF who was confused--rightfully--because Thide was skipping steps and using inconsistent notation in one chapter. Yes it's free, but I would steer students to a better book based on this limited exposure.

    As a side note, Thidè is one of the researchers who demonstrated the application of Orbital Angular Momentun encoding to radio waves.

    (I once had the link to the html version, but I can no longer locate it)
