Thank you! Ironically I am substantially less interested in physics than chemistry and biology, but I'll look into the books you mentioned.

I'm a graduate student in mathematics, but I haven't taken physics since high school. This makes me nervous about approaching most physics textbooks since I want real basics in some ways but sophistication in others.
