For a Pearson publication, this is a dreadfully poor quality product. The paper and binding are cheap, and diagrams suffer from poor resolution - especially 'shaded' regions (there are no shades of grey) or those with closely spaced lines.
The text itself is ok and, from a brief scan (this book is going back to where I purchased it), I would say that this book has everything I would want from a book on Classical Mechanics including thoughtful comments throughout that help clarify the subject. I would expect to learn a lot from it.
Unfortunately, I can't justify paying £60 or more on something that looks likely to fall apart in a matter of weeks when I hope to spend months going through it now (I'm old and slow) and refer back to it in years to come. A great shame.
The book arrived promptly and met all standards described by the buyer. I'd recommend this book to anyone taking an advanced mechanics course, particularly courses involving Lagrangian treatment of problems.
