How condensed might one expect an overview of all modern physics to be? Leonard Susskind has an answer, and provides The Theoretical Minimum
Although discussed before
, the entire lecture series has since been updated, and wrapped up in its own website with a whole bunch of extra content. It also now comes in book form
So far I've worked through the series on classical mechanics and I can say that it's very, very, good. The lecture series is provided as a series of Stanford continuing studies courses, and so a certain level of education is assumed. That being said, he does review most of the mathematics, if in a fairly loose way. I would imagine it possible to get through a lot of this material with only basic calculus. Have fun!
