can you help? Thanks

For the Restricted threebody problem, I suggest: Dynamical Systems, the ThreeBody Problem and Space Mission Design By Marsden,Koon,Lo and Ross Available free at: www2.esm.vt.edu/~sdross/books This book is a very nice compilation of results, proofs related to symbolic dynamics in the system, and numerical techniques for designing low energy trajectories. A great resource. 


If you want a more popular book, then Florin Diacu & Philip Holmes: Celestial Encounters: The Origins of Chaos and Stability is a must.
