Say I am a mathematician doesn’t know any chemistry, but would like to learn it. What books should I read?
Or say I want to learn about Einstein’s theory of relativity, but I don’t even know much basic physics. What sources should I read?
I am looking for texts that teach subjects that are not mathematics, but I do not want to read through standard high school, undergraduate (and beyond) material. I am looking for recommendations of sources that teach a scientific theory from a basic level, but not from a basic mathematical level. Strong preference would be to concise, terse texts that are foundational but totally rigorous.
Not sure if these exist, but I often wish they did.
