Review: Classical Dynamics of Particles and Systems
User Review  Mohamed Ibrahim  Goodreadsone of the worst academic text you can find to be honest some chapters were good but some other like central force chapter wass horrible I think we can use this book for revision and for getting problems ( which is good ) not for a primary textbook for any classical mechanics course Read full review
Review: Classical Dynamics of Particles and Systems
User Review  GoodreadsThe fourth edition is outstanding, I used it in my undergraduate mechanics courses, and still use it as a reference. Not as comprehensive as Goldsmith, but more comprehensible. Read full review
