Physics textbook and video series recommendations

>tl;dr pls recommend the best physics textbook and video series
I'm learning physics
I'm in the last year of high school
(18 btw, pls don't ban me)
My textbook is awful
It's full of mistakes
It's explanations are awful
They use poor notation (for example, not once do they use arrows over vector symbols, and they never seem to use subscripts, and sometimes their formulas appear to have errors in printing)
I've been watching Khan Academy videos, and while they sometimes explain things very well, at other times he seems to fumble around and leave out formulas.
I tried watching the first few MIT physics lectures. While I already understood the concepts they were teaching, I found his explanations needlessly convoluted and complicated.
So, can anyone recommend the best physics video series and textbooks?
I've checked the sticky, but there are just so many options that it's hard to decide

There's a lot of fighting between fields on this website.
Why not decide on a group of significant subjects based on a usefulness criteria instead of a 'lol I think it's difficult/easy' criteria.
Say, if the planet was in danger from an unavoidable catastrophe like stellar instability or the patriarchy. A suitable question would be:
"If we had to evacuate the planet and start anew, which fields would be essential for producing a starship, moving off-world and build a new civilization on a distant planet?"
Naturally, this gives an immediate idea of what fields are actually useful to us.
Engineers of all kinds,
Womens studies majors
and so on.
I think this might be a good model for really looking at which people are useful to society.
