Remmendation of book for a freshman

  1. Apr 29, 2010 #1
    Hi. I am a freshman in college. I am planning to do double major: computer engineering and physics.

    I used to spend a lot of times thinking about physics, and how to derivatie mathematics formulas.

    I need some recommendations of physics books that will allow me to expand my horizon in physics. As of now, I am taking calculus-based physics (I). So there is not a lot that I can read.

    My goal is learn more about the classical physics through reading. Textbooks are not enough for me.

    I'd like to read about stories, and analysis.

    Any advice?

    Not quite sure what you mean by "stories, and analysis", but it sounds like the first volume of the Feynman lectures could be good for you.
