What books would you recommend as good books for learning theory of physics. My focus is on Newtonian mechanics. Any other books with good problems to solve will also be nice.
As of now I have the feynmann lectures on physics in PDF format which I printed. Very nice although I'd like a little more detail.

Since you asked a general question ("theory of physics"), I'm going to give you a general answer:
University Physics, by Young & Freedman.
Covers about everything from linear algebra principles to modern physics and is very thorough on a basic level (if you want to go more in-depth you'll definitely need to buy a more specialized book though).
