  1. You may be surprised, but if it is really about getting basic knowledge, I would recommend classic school textbooks. In them, everything is stated quite simply, there is little superfluous and the basics are given. This will either be enough, or the hands themselves will reach out for Savelyev or Sivukhin (or even, Newton forbid, for Landau-Lifshitz), but this will be a completely different story.

  2. To understand, you need a base, that is, a solid knowledge of the basics of physics (and mathematics, by the way, too).A good database can only be obtained from a school textbook, while solving many problems. In my opinion, the best physics textbook is a 5-volume textbook for grades 10-11, ed. Myakisheva:
    Volume 1: Mechanics, 10th grade;
    Volume 2: Molecular Physics. Thermodynamics, grade 10;
    Volume 3: Electrodynamics, grades 10-11;
    Volume 4: Vibrations and Waves, class 11;
    volume 5: Optics. Quantum physics, 11th grade.

    If you are only interested in electricity, then you can limit yourself to volume 1, 3, and 4. Study it in this order: first mechanics, then electrodynamics, and only then vibrations and waves.

  3. I can recommend” Electrical engineering step by step: encyclopedia of a young amateur radio operator ” by Svoren. Although it is intended for schoolchildren, I think that this book will also be interesting and informative for adults who have first encountered this field of physics.
