I've been looking for this book for hours now. Genlib, bookzz, none of my usual ebook sources have it. Several university libraries have it (i.e.) Oxford but since I'm not enrolled in any of them it's of no use. If any of you are going there/have it somewhere I'd be thankful af.
The book is :Introduction to Neuropsychopharmacology
Authors:Leslie Iversen, PhD, Susan Iversen, PhD, Floyd E Bloom, MD, and Robert H Roth, PhD
Publisher: Oxford University Press

Hiroshima Nagasaki says we can talk about how to improve our board.
Here's what I would do:
- Ban /pol/ tier threads unless they are about new scientific information that proves the superiority of the Aryan race. (new genomic studies, psychometrics, etc.)
- Ban all of the retarded bait threads (flat Earth, "evolution is wrong," 0.999... is not equal to 1, "real numbers don't exist" etc.)
- Encourage more people to use Latex.
- Encourage more discussion of lower level mathematical and scientific subjects so more people can participate in a meaningful way, instead of just giving opinions on the Fermi Paradox.
- Allow and "Academic General" thread once a day for university related shitposting and shameless hw plagiarism.
- No more jokes about my mother, EVER EVER FUCKING EVER!

What are some good resources/textbooks for an adult outside of school to learn classical physics and mathematics?
I'm about 28 years old and I've got a career that isn't related to STEM at all. I took physics and calculus and stuff back in school but over the years I've lost a lot of it. I've noticed I've gotten dumber in general, and I'm trying to fix that.
I've been reading a shit ton over the past few months, history, philosophy, the classics, that kind of stuff. But I really would like to get a very solid grasp on mathematics and physics as well.
Obviously I don't have the time or money to go back to school for 4 years. I'm looking for recommendations on good textbooks for learning mathematics and Newtonian physics. I have no need or desire to learn about more technical things like quantum physics or abstract mathematics, just the fundamental stuff.
I'm also open to advice on how best to go about learning this stuff without a teacher. I'm guessing videos and stuff online help. Is Khan Academy at all helpful or is it just a meme?
Thanks in advance.
