Next Leonard's Susskind's theoretical minimum

In summary, the theoretical minimum, according to Leonard Susskind, is a clear and concise explanation of the essential concepts and principles necessary to understand a particular subject or field of study. Susskind, a renowned physicist and professor at Stanford University, is known for his contributions to string theory and his ability to explain complex scientific concepts in a simple and accessible way. The theoretical minimum differs from traditional textbooks by focusing on fundamental concepts and presenting information in an intuitive manner. It is suitable for both beginners and advanced students, with no strict prerequisites but a basic understanding of mathematics and physics being helpful.

I couldn't find any reference on his proposed third book on Relativity however I did find this site:

http://theoreticalminimum.com/

that may tide you over until it comes out.

You could try contacting him although I doubt if he will answer.

Who knows maybe you could be the coauthor he often writes with?
