    any recommendations to a physical chemistry book? I want to know which one is the easiest to understand, and covers all the material in detail.

    That's a subjective question so i can't say. But P.W. Atkins "Physical chemistry" is probably the most popular. (also available in the condensed version "Elements of physical chemistry")

    I agree with alxm. The elements version is more accessible i think
