Best books in respective fields

  1. Mar 27, 2008 #1
    Hi all,

    I was just wondering what everyone thought the best books were for example, for algebra, relativity, calculus, mechanics, general physics and so on.

    Basicaly which book can teach you a field of learning with most understanding.


    PS for me for example, a general physics book that I found rather comprehensive is serways physics for scientists and engineers, not sure about understanding though...
