"...delightful book which treats a special set of dynamical systems of considerable interest." Victor G. Szebehely, American Mathematical Monthly "The writing is clear and the book is very free of errors. The early chapters could well serve advanced undergraduates as a source of interesting problems; the later chapters and references could provide research material for graduate students or faculty." Mathematical Reviews "...an interesting book that presents some difficult material in a terse but readable style." Richard C. Roberts, Journal of College Science Teaching
