Excellent worked examples
on June 24, 2013
This book, part of 2-volume set along with its companion "Statics", is very good textbook. Its strength are the examples and illustrations which are in full color and very detailed. The book has a full range of the kinds of practical problems in basic dynamics which you need to solve. The theory presentation is complete, but has some oddities in its language and the focus is more on making a correct mathematical exposition of each concept, almost proof-like, rather than attempting to be didactic. For this reason it is easy to get lost in the text or find it confusing unless you work through it very slowly. If you prefer to learn by doing, this is a good book because you can learn by doing the examples and use the text more as a reference. If you require hand-holding or detailed textual explanations this is not the right book for you.
