Recommended Texts for Kepler

  1. Oct 22, 2013 #1
    I am after a text that takes one through the derivation of Keplers Laws and related material.
    I'm sure i knew of one in my undergraduate days but can't remember.
    Any suggestions?

    I learnt it from TWB Kibble: Classical Mechanics.

    Any good classic mechanic text will have a chapter on Keplerian orbits - really.
