Books that teaches classical mechanics through a discourse method ie asking interesting questions and answering them maybe a similar one to
Understanding Basic Chemistry Through Problem Solving: The Learner's Approach
Book by Jeanne Tan and Kim Seng Chan. Not exactly asking numerical questions but interesting curious theoretical questions and answering them

Please don't recommend tarasov's book they don't ask interesting questions

Thank you for the suggestion,I don't understand where this book has interesting questions this book is similiar to other standard college books maybe the theory is simple but i was searching for one similar to
V. N. Lange

Physical Paradoxes and Sophisms pls suggest if u know of any similar one's​

What is your background Viishnuuu?
From your previous activity, I think you are studying physics for fun. Right? Why not take a step forward and study REAL physics? What it all takes is to know basic integration and differentiation. You will never know the real beauty of physics if you don't study it in natural way

Hm, the first thing coming to mind is Galileo's "Discorsi" :-).

To be frank with you I never liked physics or may I should reprase it as I never liked the way it was taught in school just repeating useless vocabulary for 2-3 years and I am fed up of this standard way physics is taught in school so I thought of studying it in the most natural way possible ie by inducing one of man's most basic Instinct ie by asking good questions about the physical world and searching for good books from experienced people like you and well here I am

If you are studying in this way for your curiosity, then it's okay. There are many pop science authors to help you. But if you are physics or math student, then I strongly discourage that. However a quick Google search gave me thousands of results but this one looks interesting:-

Please just to know but why do you discourage it and thank you for your suggestions

How do you distinguish the example problems solved in a standard physics textbook from what you are looking for? In general, "interesting" is not a good proxy for what will teach you the skills to solve problems yourself.

Maybe the Feynman lectures would suit your purpose. They are kind of "chatty" and Feynman usually poses interesting problems.

I am searching for great puzzle websites or puzzle books on classical mechanics maybe similar one's to VN Lange puzzles and sophisms book or Thinking physics by Lewis Carroll Epstein puzzle book and please don't recommend from Google searches I have done a ton of that only recommend if you have used it or feel it's as good as the above mentioned one's it's a request 🙏🙏😁😅
