But Contents are same as US Edition. Unclear explanations, overly dense writing, and will skip steps that are necessary to understand the material.
Thanks for telling us about the problem. It’s one thing to know which equations to use to solve a problem, but developing a keen problem-solving skillset requires looking over fully completed examples so that you can get a feel for the thought process. Years later I read Marion and Thornton and thought it was too wordy, but could see that if one is not comfortable with translating equations, those extra explanations would be helpful.
