Which resource (textbook, etc.) for learning basics physics will I find most engaging?

I'm planning to sample each resource for 5 hours or so to make a judgement. I'm looking for which one is most interesting to read. Resources should involve equations (calculus is just fine), and be comparable to a textbook, instead of a popularization. Should cover mechanics, electromagnetism, heat, etc.

From a poster smarter than me: "if you are looking for proof-based stuff, i would recommend using art of problem solving vol 1 and vol 2 (they're on libgen) and then spivak's calculus (reteaches it with rigor) ah i would recommend this too https://www.math.uh.edu/~jmorgan/Math6397/day13/LinearAlgebraR-Handout.pdf for a programming companion"
