Classical What is a good, basic classical mechanics textbook?

    I would like one that is not very mathematically intense, and not to advanced, thanks for any replies.

    It would help to know what your current level of math and physics is at. Have you taken any calculus, or introductory physics classes before?

    If you haven't taken an introductory calculus based physics course yet, then I'd recommend A. P. French's Newtonian Mechanics. If you have taken introductory calculus based physics, then I'd recommend An Introduction to Mechanics by Kleppner and Kolenkow.
