Hello there,
I am quite the math and science geek :), as such I want to buy textbooks about CS, Math and Physics in particular, here is a list, in no particular order.
1. Calculus by Micheal Spivak
2. Vector Calculus, Linear Algebra & Differential Forms by Hubbard & Hubbard
3. A Friendly Introduction to Number Theory by Joseph Sileverman
4. Algebra by MacLane & Birkhoff
5. Electrodynamics by Griffiths
6. The New Turing Omnibus by Dewdney
7. Programming Pearls by Bentley

Now, I wanted to order them on Amazon, so I want to know what the opinion here is on amazon delivery. Should I use a site like amazonbay.ru? Otherwise, how best may I obtain English technical textbooks like this?

Kind Regards,
Kabelo Moiloa

I have been buying similar books from outside Russia as well, that amazonbay place has absurd postage.

25 years ago you would find Russian kids on the Metro with their heads stuck into similar tomes.........I like your taste!

Have you looked into the various MOOC programs (https://www.edx.org/) ? Maybe you're better off carrying around a tablet, rather than the physical texts.

For physics, the "bible" is the Feynman Lectures (http://www.feynmanlectures.caltech.edu/). For these, best you already have a grounding in calculus and DE doesn't hurt. No need for tensors.
