I'm currently taking Advanced Modern Physics and Optics, among other things. Our textbooks aren't too keen on explaining things in detail and going into the exact proofs and formulations. Im looking for a physics book or series of physics books that actually explain everything in detail, including derivations (and the algebra used) to everything from hard mechanics to modern physics to quantum, e and M and optics...I know it sounds general but there has to be a series of books that's hardcore :[
