I can't seem to find a good book on motion. I know it's a broad subject, but I'm interested in Newtonian mechanics, full trajectories (with lift, drag, etc.), and basically anything that's not quantum mechanics or special relativity. I'm more concerned with principles that are applicable to everyday motion that I see (golf balls, car crashes, etc.).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Any good recommendations? Would Newton's Principia be a good starter? I have taken physics two years so far in school, so I have a decent background. Any help?

PS - Is Euclid's Elements of Geometry worth reading? I know it's not related, but it seems interesting. Any thoughts?
