    Hello, I'm looking for a good Dynamics Book. I got Engineering Mechanics: Dynamics by Andrew Pytel and Jaan Kiusalaas, but it's fairly introductional, i also got Classical Mechanics by Goldstein, which is advanced. I am looking for intermediate level.

    I am looking mainly to learn the Lagrange and Hamilton Treatment, and Canonical Transformations.

    Look for Marion and Thorndike, Classical Dynamics. I would consider it the best text to work through before tackling Goldstein.
