Got my copy this morning. Only quibble is I would have done relativity this way:

http://www2.physics.umd.edu/~yakovenk/teaching/Lorentz.pdf

But what was chosen is still good.

QM is developed from symmetry, the only thing not derived is the Born Rule. QM is simply group theory applied to a complex field just as mechanics is group theory applied to particles.

Very very highly recommended.

Must be done after a course is multi-variable calculus and linear algebra, but that's all. However I would study something like Susskind first.

You want to learn QM and a lot of other physics as well this is your book. Like the Feynman Lectures get it and devour it.

Thanks
