* John R. Taylor's [[http://www.amazon.com/Classical-Mechanics-John-R-Taylor/dp/189138922X Classical Mechanics]] delivers ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. It's a classical mechanic...on a book about classical mechanics. Taylor seems to be fond of this trope, as indicated by the cover of his [[http://www.amazon.com/Introduction-Error-Analysis-Uncertainties-Measurements/dp/093570275X/ref=la_B001IODK2C_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1403582018&sr=1-2 textbook on error analysis]]

Added DiffLines:

* Leon van Dommelen's ''[[https://www.eng.fsu.edu/~dommelen/quantum/style_a/index.html Quantum Mechanics for Engineers]]'' goes into full DeadpanSnarker mode whenever a NonIndicativeName is mentioned, sometimes for an entire paragraph. It also has other jokes, such as its [[https://www.eng.fsu.edu/~dommelen/quantum/style_a/pth.html "explanation"]] of the confusing relativistic "Darwin term" for the electron; the electron doesn't see precisely the nuclear potential because it's quivering with fear, or maybe needs glasses.
