    Is anybody doing the exercises in Roger Penrose's book, "The Road to Reality".

    I bought the book a few weeks ago. I've been meaning to do some of the exercises. I've read up to Chapter 13 or so, but I should probably back up a few chapters and do problems.

    Edited to add:

    However, I'm taking Electrodynamics this quarter, using Jackson's text, so I may be too busy. Who knows.

    It's very good but maybe overly comprehensive with the size and all. Haven't had a chance to read in full but from what I read here and there(library copy, a friend recommended it) I appreciated the style and exposition.

    Shaun, you around?

    Is anyone else interested in working through this book in an organized fashion?

    Hi Ben Niehoff,

    Yes, I am interested. Maybe, I or somebody else could set up a forum for a few people genuinely interested in the exercises. Please post any more ideas.
