I read Steven H. Strogatz's Nonlinear Dynamics And Chaos about a decade ago, and found it interesting, entertaining, and just barely useful.

Now, I wish I'd had this book to jump into immediately after finishing Strogatz.

Sternberg's writing is perfect for a mathematically mature reader. As he says in the introduction, you need a firm grip on calculus and linear algebra. I'd say that a good understanding of undergraduate level differential equations would help as well. As I implied above, you might want to read and work through Strogatz's book first as well. If I was making a reading list to bring an undergraduate (or graduate student!) up to speed in this field, I might have them start with James Gleick's Chaos first, just to get a feel for the material, then Strogatz, then this excellent book by Sternberg.

If you like a paper copy, then buy this Dover published. It is very inexpensive. The Dover copy is an slightly updated version of the online version.
