Physical Chemistry Books

I'm struggling with Physical Chemistry and I'm also exhausted of all my online resources. Please recommend me a book which teaches me Physical Chemistry and its concepts from scratch all to way to advanced.

Best thing you can do is to go to library and check what books on the subject they have, spend some time with each of these and see which one works best for you. There is no single "one size fits all" textbook, as a lot depends on what kind of learner you are.

The classics are McQuarrie/Simon and Atkins. Depending on the edition, Atkins may have one or more coauthors (e.g., DePaula). I learned on McQuarrie but Atkins is probably the more approachable text if you are learning on your own.
