Theoretical Mechanics of Particles and Continua
This two-part text fills what has often been a void in the first-year graduate physics curriculum. Through its examination of particles and continua, it supplies a lucid and self-contained account of classical mechanics — which in turn provides a natural framework for introducing many of the advanced mathematical concepts in physics.

A very readable, no bullshit introduction to continuum mechanics. Much more useful than the verbose and extremely formal Goldstein, Poole, and Safko that is the mainstay of graduate class mech classes ... Read full review
Best book on the topic. Clear, direct self-contained. Far, far better than Goldstein's Clasical Mechanics.
