Mechanics by
L. D Landau(
Book
)
297 editions published between 1940 and 2012 in 10 languages and held by 2,862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Devoted to the foundation of mechanics, namely classical Newtonian mechanics, this mechanics text is based mainly on Galileo's principle of relativity and Hamilton's principle of least action. The exposition is simple and leads to a complete and direct means of solving problems in mechanics

31 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Here two Russian theoretical physicists give a lighthearted presentation of the special theory of relativity. It is so simply written that the reader needs no technical knowledge beyond arithmetic. Their witty text, illustrated by a series of Russian cartoons, explains the paradoxes of relativityits funny trains, contracting rulers, and capricious clocksin a charming way
