Excellent introductory book

A great book

A great book to learn classical mechanics, with a clear exposition and very insightful worked out examples. In contrast to many books at this level, Kleppner and Kolenkow illustrate the key of every concept with each example and prepare you for the problems at the end of each chapter. To learn or teach classical mechanics at the undergraduate level, this is the book.
