Way more than the average engineering students needs to know, but is a powerful reference book for later in and engineer’s career. This is expansive and can go far down into details. This is one book you should not sell back after the semester is finished.

The best in its field. Very well balanced text, figures, chapters, etc. Very well written. Good examples and problems. Excellent figures. Chapters on production planning and control offer good context for core chapters on automation. Try using NXT kits to develop labs for this subject.

This book arrived from Jordan. It's the same book as the required textbook for my college class but it is prominently marked Not For Sale in the United States or Canada. There is a statement that "If you purchased this book within the United States or Canada you should be aware that it has been wrongfully imported without the approval of the Publisher or the Author." I became an accomplice to a crime, thanks to Amazon.

Book was in good condition and served it's collegiate purpose. Provides good information on automation processes and I ended up with a good grade despite having very little interest in this subject matter.

I got this book as a required text for a class. The information is relative and information, I just found the delivery too dry. I have no other book to compare it to, so by default it is the best I've read.
