From the reviews: "A sequel to Greiner’s Classical Mechanics: Point Particles and Relativity, this book forms part of a series of 13 textbooks on theoretical physics … . A major attraction is the wealth of worked examples, which renders the book very suitable as a self-contained source for learning on one’s own … . In conclusion, this is a worthy competitor in the market of undergraduate texts on classical mechanics … ." (Professor R. S. MacKay, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 45 (2), 2004) "The book is one of the series of texts on classical theoretical physics which is based on the highly successful series of courses given by Walter Grainer … . It should be noted that for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students, the volumes in the series provide not only a complete survey of classical theoretical physics, mechanics and other parts of science but also an enormous number of worked examples and problems to show students clearly how to apply the abstract principles to realistic problems." (Sergei Georgievich Zhuravlev, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1016, 2003) "This book is the last one of the series published by the author on Theoretical Physics. … The spirit of this series of books is to offer, in a very clear and practical way, the most important theories with many applications (under the form of examples) of present time physics. … An index, a table of examples and a short bibliography complete this monograph. In conclusion, this book proposes a complete clear and modern view of classical mechanics with a numerous worked and interesting examples." (Stéphane Métens, Physicalia, Vol. 25 (2), 2003)
From the Back Cover
This textbook Classical Mechanics provides a complete survey on all aspects of classical mechanics in theoretical physics. An enormous number of worked examples and problems show students how to apply the abstract principles to realistic problems.
The textbook covers Newtonian mechanics in rotating coordinate systems, mechanics of systems of point particles, vibrating systems and mechanics of rigid bodies. It thoroughly introduces and explains the Lagrange and Hamilton equations and the Hamilton-Jacobi theory. A large section on nonlinear dynamics and chaotic behavior of systems takes Classical Mechanics to newest development in physics.
The new edition is completely revised and updated. New exercises and new sections in canonical transformation and Hamiltonian theory have been added.--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

below Golstein standard.It is a good text for the exercises
but do not expect deep explanation for generatrix function,Hamilton Jacobi resolution methods and Poisson brackets
relaion to differential geomery
