This site is devoted to errata, corrections and comments on Classical Mechanics, 3rd Edition, Goldstein, Poole, and Safko

We will identify changes that have been made since the first printing of the third edition by the printing number. This number appears near the bottom of the page facing the Table of Contents. On that page there is a string of numbers ending with 10 followed by -MA- or –HAM–. The first number in this string is the printing. The numbers following are the year the printing was released. Copies of all printings are still for sale.

There have been 3 revisions ending with the 6th printing. The links below give you the corrections to revise your printing to the 6th printing. There is also a link of suggested changes to the 6th printing which will be updated as needed.

There also is a link to the references at the end each chapter in the 2nd edition and the bibliography in 2nd edition. These were not included in the 3rd edition at the request of the publisher.

If you have a 1st, 2nd or 3rd printing make
these changes to obtain the 6th printing.
If you have a 4th or 5thprinting
make these changes to obtain the 6th printing.
