Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Not much to say. Great book, great writing, and really well used examples. Instead of starting with the abstract and ending with an example, Hartman uses problem solving as the catalyst for explanation. The prose is interesting to read (unlike most textbooks) and the demonstrations are well labeled and stand on their own. 5/5 for quality, ease of use as a reference, and relevance to ANY engineer.
