I have an undergraduate degree in biology, and a pretty strong background in math and basic physics (de's, intro mechanics, intro e&m), and bought this text to teach myself continuum/engineering mechanics. I am about halfway through, and although I will say that I've learned along the way, I will also say that the text is not as thorough or clear as it could be.

Lots of typos. And I don't mean just minor ones like leaving out a letter in a word, but e.g. the text references some equations in one of the early chapters. But the equations don't exist! (This is in, I don't remember exactly, but like chapter 2 or so, and it is referencing equations like 3.blah or 4.blah or something; made it confusing to interpret what they are talking about). Like they were rushing to get it to print, and didn't bother reading over the manuscript before publishing it.

Contains both worked-out problems (with answers) and not-worked-out problems (without answers). It would be nice if they had some that weren't worked out, but had answers in the back of the book.

Yeah, and just generally, the text is a little wordy and confusing in various places.

Not sure what the gold standard for engineering mechanics texts is, but would recommend some other book.

Used this in my Continuum engineering course at Harvey Mudd College. Happens to be the place where the authors work. Loved the textbook, maybe because the class was designed by the people who wrote it. Either way, I'll keep it for a while
