Recommend a Mechanics book?

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Im having a hard time in my mechanics class at my course. The teacher has recommended "Applied Mechanics" but the book looks incredibly dull and old fashioned. Im looking to buy another mechanics book.

    Im doing product design and at the moment we are learning about friction of a block on a slope, turning forces of cogs, projectiles etc. I think its A level mechanics, but i didnt do maths at A level, so i need to catch up. However later on in the course it gets harder so i need a book which can teach me that also.

    Does anyone have any recomendations?

    Thanks for any help you can give,

    I did search, i couldnt find anything. A lot of them seem to be dealing with a different side of mechanics than i am learning, or seem even more plain than the one i have been recommened to buy.
