As in Orbital Dynamics? I would strongly recommend Murray & Dermott's "Solar System Dynamics", it's pretty much THE textbook on the subject.

Well, here's a classic, and it's apparently free online:

Principles Of Stellar Dynamics (http://www.archive.org/details/principlesofstel032621mbp) - Chandrasekhar

I have Fundamentals of Astrodynamics, by Bates, Mueller, and White. To steal an quip from a favorite comedian, after five minutes I didn't have enough bread crumbs to find my way home.

It looks good on the shelf, though.
