Lord of the Physics Books

  1. Feb 3, 2013 #1
    Hey Forum ,
    Ive been wanting to learn Classical Physics(calculus based) and Astrophysics, but have not crossed paths with a book which seems to satisfy my hunger for thorough and complete explanation.
    What I ask of you folks is to Recommend a few books for Classical Physics , and Astrophysics(and Cosmology) which contains extremely detailed information and explanations. I don't mind a number of books which I can use simultaneously but please help me out.

    Goldstein's Classical Mechanics is the classical graduate level / advanced undergraduate level text on classical mechanics. If that's too much, there are many undergraduate texts on classical mechanics, e.g., Classical Mechanics by Taylor and Classical Dynamics of Particles and Systems by Marion and Thornton.
