These books: Advanced Physics (Adams/Allday) and Physics (Ken Dobson)

    Advanced Physics (Advanced Science) by Steve Adams & Jonathan Allday from OUP Oxford: http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0199146802/ref=ord_cart_shr?_encoding=UTF8&m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE


    Physics (Collins Advanced Science) 3rd Edition by Kenneth Dobson from Collins Educational: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Physics-Col...m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_r=1XE8BGFH5P2ZEPNZB5XK

    Does anyone know any of these books? I find them very intriguing from their very high user review ratings, but I just can't find any information on them outside Amazon. I already own University Physics by Young and Freedman though, so I probably have all the topics covered, but looking at the table of contents of Advanced Physics I noticed that all subjects/subchapters fill consistently 2 pages. This may be good and bad, but the users seem to love it. If anything it could make for a good reference book. I don't know anything about Ken Dobsons Physics, you can't view the book, I cannot find any additional info either from google or the publishers official website.

    If anyone have worked with any of these books or know of them otherwise please tell me your impressions! :)

    The reason I'm even looking at these type of books is that I've become interested in teaching, either privately or at high-school in math/physics, so I thought it would be nice to have several different physics books each giving perhaps a little different perspective on things.

    Sidenote: any suggestions on other books that might complement Young/Freedmans University Physics are welcome.
