Good intermediate mechanics book

    I do not like Thorton/Marion. Is Atam P. Arya's book "An Introduction to Classical Mechanics" good? Or "Classical Particles- Point Particles and Relativity" by W. Greiner good?

    actually, i didn't like thornton so much either. I only though chapter 7 was well written and clear. I instead read Arya's text and landau's.

    Fowles, Analytical Mechanics. Prices of the newest edition are ridiculous, so I'd go for older editions (I have the 4th edition.)
