This text is excellent, and is easy to read.

The section on fracture though left a little bit to be desired, the section discussing brittle fracture is only about half a page.

Book has more short comings than I thought compared to the newer edition.

This book covers tons of material. It was part of 2 classes I took, and I've referred to it in several others. It has content on almost everything that will be covered in an undergraduate materials science program, then a little bit more. The amount of coverage it gives for each topic though varies quite a bit. I found its discussion on the various microstructures of steel very useful on multiple occasions. The section on fracture though left a little bit to be desired, the section discussing brittle fracture is only about half a page. It tries to condense what would probably be 3 or 4 whole chapters in a mechanical properties textbook (on fracture, fatigue, creep, impact testing, stress concentration) into a single 50 page chapter. Overall though, I found it to be a good intro textbook and a good reference for concepts.

The text is somewhat confusing. The diagrams are too small and any attempt to magnify results in grainy pictures. Additionally the lack of page numbers makes it difficult to follow along with a class. Locations do not help at all. The formatting seems to be off and can lack cohesiveness unless you can compare it to the hard-copy version.

Needed this book for a class. I didn't find it to be particularly helpful or useless. Just about average. Yup.

The book arrived a few days after I made my order and in the stated condition. Overall, I am satisfied with this product. In addition, for those of you buying this book, the questions expect a foundation in algebra and trigonometry and the equations are provided in the chapters. What upsets me is that the author never bothers to explain the proofs for the equations or at least where they came from. But the book also has some useful information and will provide you with basic skills in materials engineering if you read the chapters and answer the questions, which aren't that difficult to begin with.

Book has more short comings than I thought compared to the newer edition. Came very quickly and brand new. No weird smell and no damaged edges makes for a great review!
