No books by me. But there are some very good ones out there.
A physicist named Richard Feynman did a three volume set of books for
Physics students (The Feynman Lectures). And they were simply amazing.
They were incredibly clear explainations of how things worked. If you
want a good introduction into Physics, I would recommend finding them
at Powells, or a used book store.
