So You Want to Learn Physics... — Susan J. Fowler

Over the past few years, ever
since writing "If Susan Can Learn Physics, So Can You", I've been contacted by people from
all backgrounds who are inspired and want to learn physics, but don't know where to start,
what to learn, what to read, and how to structure their studies. I've spoken with single
mothers who want to go back to school and study physics, tenured philosophy professors who
want to learn physics so that they can make significant and informed contributions to
philosophy of physics, high school students who want to know what they should read to
prepare for an undergraduate education in physics, and people in dozens of various careers
who want to really, really learn and understand physics simply for the joy of it.
