Main Question or Discussion Point

Interesting Physics Books

I'm still new to physics in general and I was wondering if any of you could tell me some good books to read about physics for someone with little formal training. I have already read both of brian greene's books, hyperspace, and Einstiens cosmos. Thanks.

Brian Greene is a terrible introduction to physics; most pop science books are.

I'd recommend starting with a calculus book then picking up a book on classical mechanics so that you see what physics is actually like.

There is a forum for books on here:

https://www.physicsforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=21

From what I have read on there, it seems as if the "Feynman's Lectures on Physics" books are recommended for people looking for a solid explanation of physical principles without being bogged down by the mathematics.
