I'm wanting to learn physics. In fact i'm a software engineer and i find physics very fascinating. But everything I read things concerning physics, I don't understand many things. What are the books that can be helpful for someone who don't know physics but have a good foundation of mathematics??

Start with "Physics for Scientists and Engineers with Modern Physcs" by Jewett and Serway. It is good for Newtonian Mech and Special Relativity. Once you're done, read about Lagrangian & Hamiltonian mech from wikipedia and then you can read Ludvigsen's "General Relativity: A geometric approach". However, it doesn't cover the EH action (it's approach is too geometric) so read that from wikipedia (it has a nice article on this) –  Dimensio1n0 Jun 30 '13 at 7:48
