Paul G. Hewitt
I really enjoyed Professor Galli's “Introduction to Physics” class, so much that I decided to keep my physics book instead of selling it back to the book store so that I could read it again.
I'll tell ya what though: Don't try to watch Anime when taking a daily physics class, or else you'll find yourself annoyed by all the bad cartoon physics.
Price: Way too much; buy it used
I wrote this (not quite a) review over 15 years ago. Hewitt now has a website at www.conceptualphysics.com featuring additional resources to compliment his book, which is now it its 12th edition. With a price over 200 bucks, it's still ridiculously overpriced, as all college textbooks are.
