You could try "Thinking Physics," available from Amazon (or LibGen)

It's not easy and you'd need to find problems to work, but is one source some people swear by. Others say it's too hard for a beginner text. I think both have a point, but it's free to see for yourself. is not free, but also excellent and gentler.

Thinking Physics:

It's a little bit like The Little Schemer in that it often asks you a question and expects you to try to answer it before turning the page (or turning it upside down). The problems tend to go like "if you did this, would that (A) increase (B) decrease (C) stay the same" or "(A) increase by one (B) double (C) quadruple" -- to minimize technical machinery while still engaging you with genuine problems, not vague analogies.

The same author has a book on relativity which looked very good from the first couple of chapters I read.

I just started reading this book, "Thinking Physics", which teaches physics the way Feynman talks about, by trying to build intuition. It asks short questions like Feynman's about the table, and expects you to think about the answer for a while, before giving it to you and presenting the physics behind it.

If you like these kinds of thought problems, I definitely recommend Thinking Physics by Lewis Carroll Epstein.
