From Paul G. Hewitt, author of the market-leading Conceptual Physics," " comes his eagerly awaited new, briefer, alternativetext, Conceptual Physics Fundamentals. The text extends best-selling author Paul Hewitt s proven pedagogical approach, straight-forward learning features, approachable style, and rigorous coverage, while providing superior supplements and media. The book develops a solid conceptual understanding of physics, while building readers' self-confidence applying their understanding quantitatively. About Science, Equilibrium and Linear Motion, Newton s Laws of Motion, Momentum and Energy, Gravity, Projectiles, and Satellites, Fluid Mechanics, Temperature, Heat, and Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer and Change of Phase, Electrostatics and Electric Current, Magnetism and Electromagnetic Induction, Waves and Sound, Light waves, Properties of Light, Atoms, Quantum Theory, The Atomic Nucleus and Radioactivity. For all readers interested in conceptual physics."

I see this book as sort of a blog of a physics lover. It has an interesting way with words and a lot of stories before touching on concepts BUT as a textbook for students to follow in a classroom, this is no good.
It doesn't help build fundamental concepts to the point of being able to be tested on it. I have no idea why the solutions manual is sold separately for this type of book... it should just be attached, it's not a big book.
Plus, the author's bias is thrown in quite a few times, so that kind of diminishes its message.
I don't recommend this for a physics class, especially for a basic physics one. It assumes you already know a lot.
I would recommend it maybe for some physics instructors looking for some creative ideas to teach a class.
