    First off This is not Newton s Principia merely retold This is a total reworking of Newton s ideas and theories using modern notation and terminology Chandrasekhar goes into immense detail for each problem It s fascinating and intense all at the same time.Second off Visiting a rare scientific book exhibit at the George Peabody library reminded me of this excellent book The exhibit had a first edition Principia that I was drooling over For me, that was the highlight.Third off I can t beli First off This is not Newton s Principia merely retold This is a total reworking of Newton s ideas and theories using modern notation and terminology Chandrasekhar goes into immense detail for each problem It s fascinating and intense all at the same time.Second off Visiting a rare scientific book exhibit at the George Peabody library reminded me of this excellent book The exhibit had a first edition Principia that I was drooling over For me, that was the highlight.Third off I can t believe it s been gasp almost 15 years since I read this book Where does the time go Fourth off Chandrasekhar was a freaking genius The kind that doesn t come along very often He passed away just before I started college, and it was clear that his presence was still felt on campus This book was his passion in his emeritus years

    I m glad I read this book, as I have often seen the Principia mentioned without ever knowing quite what was in it And now I do.

  4. Haresh Bhardwaj Haresh Bhardwaj says:

    This book explains many of Newton s propositions using modern maths It just shows how good is Calculus sic and Vector Algebra over geometry Many of the propositions are proved geometrically, and are very hard to understand Chandra s book clears them up.

  5. Mark Bell Mark Bell says:

    Wonderful Really takes you step by step through the Principia and helps you understand Newton s work Well worth the price, believe me.
