From the reviews:
"Professor Arnold has expanded his classic book to include new material on exponential growth, predator-prey, the pendulum, impulse response, symmetry groups and group actions, perturbation and bifurcation … . The new edition is highly recommended as a general reference for the essential theory of ordinary differential equations and as a textbook for an introductory course for serious undergraduate or graduate students. … In the US system, it is an excellent text for an introductory graduate course." (Carmen Chicone, SIAM Review, Vol. 49 (2), 2007)
"Vladimir Arnold’s is a master, not just of the technical realm of differential equations but of pedagogy and exposition as well. … The writing throughout is crisp and clear. … Arnold’s says that the book is based on a year-long sequence of lectures for second-year mathematics majors in Moscow. In the U.S., this material is probably most appropriate for advanced undergraduates or first-year graduate students." (William J. Satzer, MathDL, August, 2007)
