I'm an IT student. I hated physics in high school and always wanted to skip physics classes,but recently after reading Stephen Hawking's book "the grand design" i think I'm interested in physics. i found this interest shocking but i can't help it. i wanna read more and more. when i start reading "the grand design" i was really eager to understand the concepts cause it was the first physic book that i was reading, although i tried i just understood some parts,but i kept reading and finished it. Now i want to make my knowledge in physics strong so if i read another book i could understand it well. what are some general physics books that you can suggest to me in order to gain knowledge about the basic of physics?
