I agree that text books are too expensive and sometimes hard to understand. But on the other hand, there's a lot to learn about mechanics and calculus. The only real way to learn is by doing, and I think that's essentially independent of formatting. What is it in other texts that you find to be "bullshit"? Or is it that you just don't like that calc is typically a prereq for mechanics, when calculus was invented specifically for solving mechanics problems to begin with? I agree with that position, frankly. Even though calculus certainly has tons of applications separate from mechanics, I think learning it in the context of physics is the easiest way, because students can start to understand that the math isn't just an abstraction. "Who gives a shit?" is an appropriate answer to the question of what is the tangent line to such and such parametric curve at point (X1,X2), IMO, if the question is framed in a vacuum. Are you simply trying to reconnect what seems lost in the academy these days? If so, it's a commendable goal.
