Please review http://www.motionmountain.net
The site offers a free 1600 physics textbook
for download. Be strict and harsh, please!

I'm impressed that the right menu offers the language selection while not altering the English selection on the left menu. I did not download the textbook to review the site. I assumed the download worked. I like the greens. I'm not certain I understand the purpose of the background images pic3.jpg and pic4.jpg

I like it. Pictures seem low quality/dithered though. :|

Yes, that is done on purpose, because those links point to English pages.

Great site! Clear, well organised, clean, definitely not overdone.

Good balance achieved by size and positioning of images.

And, specially good to see the use of fluid layout. It had to be done by a physicist. :)

My only suggestion would be to put a few extracts, or a sample chapter, of the book available on-line, on your site.

I would have liked to look at it prior to the big download, but I like physics and my curiosity is aroused. I am downloading it now.

Again, very good, subdued site design, great idea and a great service to all.

Congratulations

PS added after I downloaded the book, but not yet finished reading it... :) , The download was really quick,specially given the size of the book. The book looks stunning and quite unequivocally is the best free thing I have seen for quite a while. Thanks again, and wishing you great and deserving success.

I appreciated your site because of providing free 1600 physics text book for downloading. Content is good but site design is low.

Thank you for the suggestion: I added a link to the scribd preview of the pdf.

Ok. site design might be "low" - what could be improved?
