I've read the Biochemistry one and it was very good. There's little of plot even compared to most doujins, there are a lot of details and the statements are perfectly correct. The only Biochem book I had read before was Harper's Biochemistry, so I could easily compare the quality, which was indeed on par.
Here's Biochemistry, Relativity and Physics: http://bayfiles.net/file/1iCjG/iMz0oj/manga-guides.tar.gz
the rest of the guides
they work i downloaded them all
Man, I can't believe someone actually put in the effort to make these things. Drawing manga alone takes fucking forever, and then trying to explain mathematical concepts in a visual way, in manga form? That's fucking ridiculous.
These books are actually very good. They have examples as well as "So is x an example of y, and does this mean that the z of g is h?" kind of things that a lot of people would ask a teacher, which isn't usually found in books. Plus, it's a lot more enjoyable than just reading a textbook.
However, it's generally brief overviews of concepts, but it's good for getting an understanding or reviewing for a test.
I haven't read the Manga guide yet, but on a similar note, Larry Gonick's books are quite good.
So far it looks more big picture than most text books. I like that. Can anyone recommend other textbooks that work on developing a global picture, rather than a... linear ... approach?
Alternatively, Can anyone recommend methods of developing global understanding of topics while using linear texts?
linear algebra for dummies?
The funny thing is that I didn't know until know, but it actually exists
Well, there's this if you're okay with it:
This up-to-date book is strongly recommended as a high school textbook. Intended for researchers and advanced graduate students, this eloquent book will introduce the reader to the classification of super-compact algebras as well as an example of Cantor. A brilliant discussion of closed lines is reserved to later chapters. [...] The notable author is a prominent expert in non-linear category theory. In the last 769 years, many advances have been made in convex algebra. The reference combines a rewarding account of parabolic arithmetic with a up-to-date description of higher universal number theory.
