Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a student of aerospace engineering, I took a class in orbital mechanics - a truly fascinating subject. Like many others at the time, I was exposed to "Fundamentals of Astrodynamics" by Bate et al. As far as I know, people thought it was the best text available. However, it is no match for Curtis' book. Comparing the two made me somewhat envious of today's student. Orbital Mechanics offers great clarity, great solved examples, and surprising depth, considering it is an undergraduate text. To me clarity is of the essence and, to me, nothing provides more clarity than worked out examples, in particular if they involve realistic scenarios. For instance, one of the examples of this nature provides a step-by-step approach to determine the orbit of an asteroid from two observations. A great book I recommend to anyone studying orbital mechanics.

Format: Hardcover
A good book full of helpful information - the problem is that it seems to have been written as a textbook you're supposed to read, and the way it will be used is as a reference for formulas and tables. It could do with being more brief, frankly. Though if you're buying this, it's probably required for a class, and you don't have a choice.
