Ok, this is my first post here. I looked around the forum and sub-forums real quick. I don't know where else to post this but if this is in the wrong sub-forum then the mods or admins should feel free to move it to another subforum : Someone you know is going to be stuck on a desert island for a significant amount of time and while he is there he wants to learn physics to pass the time away (he will be provided with supplies to allow him to focus on reading and leisure for the most part). However, there is a stipulation on how many books he can bring. He can only bring about 5 or 6 books and he has to learn phsyics from these alone doing syntopical reading. So what books would you recommend this person bring with him to the island if he asked for your expert advice on the matter ?
