This is a book about mechanics, not for dummies, but for mathematicians, in 22 chapters:


    Physics is revisted by a very good professor of mathematics.

    In 2004, he wrote: "the problem is that I could easily understand symplectic structures, it's elementary mechanics that I don't understand". Then he worked hard, and produced this wonderful summa.

    If learning mechanics is also your challenge, then you will profit from the valuable knowledge gathered and arranged by Michael Spivak.
