I am an almost layman in physics, and don't know much in math (only basic knowledge upto trig ), and want to learn physics . .
As I am completely inexperienced, and considering most of the textbook in physics are Hallday Resnic styled plug and chug, somewhere I found the suggestion to struggle with Feynman. Crazily most of the places suggested you would go astray with Feynman (I went astray, It took me two weeks to partially understand the Gravitational Energy, probably fourth chapter) unless you have a good intuitive grasp of basic ideas in physics.
Are there any good (not pop sci) introductory physics books? I'm willing to struggle to get good understanding, and (there is no cramming exam pressure to rush) and the book should must be fun and interesting*.
- Measurement by Paul Lockhart is an excellent example of such book, but it is in mathematics - I want in physics.
