"The book is built in a multilayer (or `telescoped', in the authors words) structure, with a very rich index: by looking through the table of contents the reader will easily locate the sections in which a given topic or example is dealt with. Inside each section, a similar structure is present, with a very rich supply of more detailed discussions, remarks, problems and exercises; all of this material is set in different types, so that one can easily navigate through the main line of the book and enter the detail only if and where desired. This will help the reader facing such a complete treatment, both in case of students trying to master the subject through a structured study, and in that of practitioners interested in some specific systems. The book is, in the reviewer's opinion, well suited to both of these uses." (Zentralblatt MATH, 1011, 2003)
"A great attention to all details of calculations [...] allows an undergraduate student or just a novice to follow them. Thus, the book combines the features of a scientific monograph and a textbook (or even the syllabus of a special university course). [...] All in all, the book describes part of the modern theory of integrable systems of classical mechanics as seen by one of its creators. It is highly accessible and will serve as a standard reference for a long time." (Mathematical Reviews 2003a)
