Also what would be the same criteria for some Math books? Calculus by Spivak is an example... ?

At the level you should be able to read and understand, I'd start off with Halliday and Resnik.

What is the level of math that you already know? Algebra? Calculus? Vector Analysis? If you post what you know and what is it that you are trying to do, I am sure many will chime in. Your question is too open ended and broad as 'best picks' depend on the current level of knowledge and the intended purpose.

Ok :) so the last physics book i read was the Physics for Scientists and Engineers by Serway and as the book is too broad and deals with every subject i wany now to go deeper than this. Concerning Mathematics im at Calculus level so good Calculus or Differential equation book...What is the level of math that you already know? Algebra? Calculus? Vector Analysis?

Well, and it's sometimes misleading (note the discussions on vakonomic dynamics in this forum!).

I would recommend the following books (not in any specific order for a set)

1. Verma - Concept of Physics vol 1 - http://www.abebooks.com/products/isbn/9788177091878

2. Verma - Concepts of Physics vol 2 - http://www.abebooks.com/products/isbn/9788177092325

3. Shankar Volume 1- https://www.amazon.com/dp/0300192207/?tag=pfamazon01-20&tag=pfamazon01-20

4. Shankar Volume 2 - https://www.amazon.com/dp/0300212364/?tag=pfamazon01-20&tag=pfamazon01-20 (will be released soon)

5. Haliday Resnick Krane Volume 1 - https://www.amazon.com/dp/0471320579/?tag=pfamazon01-20&tag=pfamazon01-20

6. Haliday Resnick Krane Volume 2 - https://www.amazon.com/dp/0471401943/?tag=pfamazon01-20&tag=pfamazon01-20

7. Savov - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0992001005/?tag=pfamazon01-20&tag=pfamazon01-20

The first set by Verma is not very well known but is
