An excellent text for the teaching of physics from a very conceptual (not so overly mathematical) standpoint. I have used it with great success for the last three years. ( )

Epigraph
I think we must retain the belief that scientific knowledge is one of the glories of man. I will not maintain that knowledge can never do harm. I think such general propositions can almost always be refuted by well-chosen examples. What I will maintain -- and maintain vigorously -- is that knowledge is very much more often useful than harmful and that fear of knowledge is very much more often harmful than useful. -- Bertrand Russell, 1872 - 1970

First words
To the Student:
Perhaps the most exciting discovery that you can make about the physical world is that all the diverse phenomena of nature are tied together by surprisingly few relationships.
Prologue:
Modern civilization is built on science.
Some two thousand years ago, Greek scientists understood some of the physics we understand today.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0321009711, Hardcover)

Written for students of introductory physics, this best-selling text offers students an upbeat, non-threatening overview of the discipline which focuses on concepts and critical thinking rather than number-crunching. It presents physics in a language students can comprehend, using analogies and mental imagery based on real world situations. Mathematical equations, formulas, and calculations appear as a footnote on the page to reference and supplement chapter concepts and help students see the connection between math and science.
