These books are what really got me into physics. Introductory but done very beautifully. I was never much for most of it in high school (couldn't care any less), but in preparing for college I wanted to go through it so I could take the exam for those classes and pass out so I'd never have to take physics again, but it did the opposite and made me just super-curious about everything.
