This is the book nicely describing kinematics, statics, and dynamics of manipulators. There is a strong mathematics tool used but very understandable. I reccommend the books to students or teachers of kinematics for its nice mathematical description. I wish to find the books of the same clarity for other topics I teach.
I used this to review my Lagrangian dynamics for a SCARA robot. It has very clear walkthroughs of Newtonian and Lagrangian analysis of SCARA robots. That is good, but what makes this book great is that it takes the time to spell out, in English, the differences between the two methods and goes so far as to show what elements of the the kinematic equations represent what physical phenomenon.
