Description of this Ebook

The story. In 1992 we told a textbook sales rep that we didn't like the Dynamics books. She said "Write your own." Most people said "Don't write a book. It's too much work, no-one will appreciate it and it will probably lose money." Saunders contracted the book and then sold it to Oxford. Most years we work together for a month or so in Ithaca, Finland, or Bangalore. We re-organized the book 4 or 5 times and added a Statics book because students needed help with vectors and free body diagrams. Various pre-release versions have been used at Cornell and elsewhere about 25 times. It has had about 40 external reviews. The table of contents, preface and introduction show our intentions.
