Suggest me book on Electrostatics

  1. Sep 13, 2015 #1
    I need some book on Electrostatics. I don't have knowledge in this field so I need something "beginner friendly", I mean it should cover this subject from very beginning.
    Thanks in advance.

    What level of math are you prepared for? If you've been through a year of calculus, the first few chapters of Purcell will do it.

    Hi, thanks for reply. I'm familiar with math, it is not problem :)

    Purcell's a good one, but Griffith's is my personal favorite. If you're willing to deal with a little bit of hand-waviness for the sake of gaining physical intuition, you can't go wrong. It's also incredibly easy to read.
