(You do not need these, but if you want an alternate source, here are
some I know of)

More advanced or at this level:

Herbert Goldstein, Classical Mechanics, 2nd ed. QA805.G6 1980.
This is the book I used before writing mine, and is most similar in
spirit to mine. There is now a third edition, with Poole and Safko,
which includes a chapter on chaos and a minimal treatment of
differential forms.
 Landau and Lifshitz, Mechanics 3rd ed. QA805.L283/1976
 Percival and Richards, Intro. to Dynamics,
Cambridge, 1982 QA614.8.P47 1982. This is where I learned the
most about flows in phase space.
 Arnold, Math. Methods of Classical Mechanics
QA805.A6813/1981. This is the canonical highbrow text.
 Jose and Saletan, Classical Dynamics QA805.J73/1998
 Corben and Stehle, Classical Dynamics
 Matzner and Shepley, Classical Dynamics ISBN 0131370766
 Talman, Geometric Mechanics ISBN 0471157384 QC125.2.T35 1999
 More elementary:
 Jerry B. Marion and Stephen T. Thornton,
Classical Dynamics, (3rd ed) QA845.M38 1995
 Keith R. Symon, Mechanics, (3rd ed) QC125.2.S94 1971
 John R. Taylor, Classical Mechanics QC125.2.T39
ISBN 189138922X
 A. Douglas Davis, Classical Mechanics QC125.2.D38 1986.
 Kleppner, Daniel and Kolenkow, Robert J.
an Introduction to Mechanics QA805.K62
 French, Newtonian Mechanics QC125.2.F74
 Arya, Introduction to Classical Mechanics
 Mathematical material
 Paul Bamberg and Shlomo Sternberg, A Course in Mathematics
for Students of Physics, 2 QA37.2 B36 1991
 H. M. Schey, div grad curl and all that, QA433.S28 2004.
more elementary.
