I am looking for an introductory book on Mechanics. (I have never studied Physics before) Calculus (Single and multivariable) is not a problem. Kleppner's "Introduction to Mechanics" looks great, but it is very expensive. At a few of the internet books seller sites, I have seen the "Berkeley Physics Series" for sale. The books are published by McGraw Hill in India (SI units.) The books are paperback and sell for about $10 each. I know that Volume 2 on Electricity and Magnetism by Purcell is used by many top universities. Is anyone familiar with Volume 1 of the series, Mechanics by Kittel?
