The book clearly and concisely explains the basic principles of Lagrangian dynamicsand provides training in the actual physical and mathematical techniques of applying Lagrange's equations, laying the foundation for a later study of topics that bridge the gap between classical and quantum physics, engineering, chemistry and applied mathematics, and for practicing scientists and engineers.
