    Where can I get English Math, CS and Physics textbooks?

    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

    Have you looked into the various MOOC programs ? Maybe you're better off carrying around a tablet, rather than the physical texts.

    For physics, the "bible" is the Feynman Lectures. For these, best you already have a grounding in calculus and DE doesn't hurt. No need for tensors.
