I love this book for its wonderful explanations, lengthy tables of physical constants, great references, and comprehensiveness (964 p, but seems longer). Unfortunately, students are overwhelmed by its lengthy explanations, data tables, and comprehensiveness. In other words, it probably makes a better reference book than a textbook. I could not find a publisher that currently supports the book, but it is available on Amazon in hardcover for $139.
Prentice Hall is the current publisher, but there are a lot of used copies available from various sources. Recently, I have used it as a text and some of my students have found used copies for under $40.
I agree that the book is a overwhelming and likely will change to another text this year.
