    I think you're asking for a bit too much here...

    In which topic are you interested right now? Mechanics? EM? We can help you pick a book for specific topics.

    Ranking textbooks by difficulty is inaccurate. What some find difficult, others may find easy.

    It's more ideal to label a book based on its intended reader. That is, introductory vs intermediate and undergraduate vs graduate.

    Even so, you will get quality by using the standard texts for each of those levels, for each course. No need to rate every book.

    But we already have a textbook forum where many textbooks have input from members of the forum, or at the very least contain the Table of Contents of the book. That would be far more useful than any arbitrary ranking some random member gives you on a scale from 1-8.
