Book suggestion for Classical Mechanics

+1
−2
Since, there's no book category currently so, I am asking it here. And, It can be moved to that category later. I want to start learning now so, I don't want to wait.

Which book is best for Classical Mechanics? I have studied Classical Mechanics little bit. But, I want a book which explains theories step by step (It's OK if that book has GR topic). I want that book to prove formulas (theories) step by step. I had studied some book but, those books don't explain theories properly, those books mostly for solving problem. I had completed most of topic in Classical Mechanics (didn't prove theories/equations).

What I have completed :

  1. Laws of Motion, 2 dimensional motion.
  2. Force
  3. Sounds
  4. Heat (not completely) (little bit of Thermodynamics).
  5. Reflection, Refraction.
  6. Special Relativity.
  7. General Relativity (I just can explain how Gravity works nothing else).
  8. Work
  9. Power
  10. Electricity.
  11. Harmonic Motion

Now, studying Lagrangian mechanism in Goldstein's Classical Mechanics book.


I was reading Introduction to Classical Mechanics by David Morin, that book was little bit hard to understand. So, I am reading Classical Mechanics by John R. Taylor. It's little bit easy (but not too much).

I've thought about this for a while and I've came to the conclusion that it should be closed, at least temporarily. The meta post has some support, but also points out that we need detailed info on each post. The 2 things with this question is that it really needs the books category instead of Q&A and that more detail is essential to give a decent answer. Maybe an example of what you've read or tried? Or what topics you've covered (or want the book to cover) and to what level? In the interests of helping you find something and get the best question we can, if you ping me on Discord, I might be able to make a few suggestions at different levels and hopefully narrow things down a bit

Is there something else which I should add?

I think this is fine now, as far as book suggestions/recommendations go. Strictly speaking, it should be in a different category, but as it's not a category we have (yet), I'll leave it here until we do
