Goldstein's Classical Mechanics

  1. Jan 30, 2016 #1
    I got a copy through interlibrary loan. 1950 and it looks great. While the textbook I bought in 2012 for $60 has the pages all warped and turning yellow. They don't make 'em like they used to.

    I can buy a used hardcover copy of the first edition for $21. I might go for that.

    Some joker wants $200 for a used paperback copy in "acceptable" (the lowest rating) condition. Ha ha. Very funny.

    But the pages were thinner in former times. At least in my books.

    Thinner but denser. It feels like a brick.
