The book by Sridhar Chitta, where electrostatics and electric circuits are treated in a unified way on the basis of surface charges, is one of the rare exceptions in textbooks today. The primary objective of this book is obviously to encourage students to think deeply by themselves and not just to learn and to apply mathematical equations. If students, for instance, just learn about the term potential as energy per charge they have not understood much. On the contrary, the majority of students learn such mathematical expressions and unconsciously they feel that they have not understood. As a consequence, they might lose interest in further learning.
