Hi all! I was referred to this forum through a google search about how to teach myself the basics of Astrophysics... this Quora page in particular. You guys must be doing something right, as it seemed like an informed response. I'm beginning, as that post suggests, with Halliday & Resnick. I look forward to getting to know the community here, and I'd welcome any suggestions for books or resources that have helped you right at the beginning of your 'journey into Physics'. My background is as an associate lecturer in English Literature - so I'm really crossing the aisle here! best wishes, Andy.
