John Taylor has brought to his most recent book, Classical

Mechanics, all of the clarity and insight that made his Introduction to

Error Analysis a best-selling text. Classical

Mechanics is intended for students who have studied some mechanics in an

introductory physics course, such as "freshman physics."

With unusual clarity, the book covers most of the topics normally found in books at this level, including

conservation laws, oscillations, Lagrangian mechanics, two-body problems, non-inertial frames, rigid bodies, normal modes, chaos theory,

Hamiltonian mechanics, and continuum mechanics.

A particular highlight is the chapter on chaos, which focuses on a few

simple systems, to give a truly comprehensible introduction to the

concepts that we hear so much about. At the end of each chapter is a large selection of interesting problems

for the student, 744 in all, classified by topic and approximate difficulty, and ranging from

simple exercises to challenging computer projects.

Adopted by more than 450 colleges and

universities in the USA and Canada and translated into six languages, Taylor's Classical Mechanics is

a thorough and very readable introduction to a subject that is four hundred

years old but as exciting today as ever. The

author manages to convey that excitement as well as deep understanding and insight.
