"Logan does a very good job of keeping things simple and straight forward. Fairly well written using a simple approach without extensive theoretical and mathematical theory. The text is very complete."
"Logan has a very easy-to-read style, while retaining the precision and clarity of engineering topics without being dry."
"The author presented topics in a simple and easy-to-follow way and provided subsequently proper derivation or illustration to enhance students' understanding. I cannot find a textbook which is better than this one in the field of finite element method."
