Editorial Reviews


"One of the most useful and important books I have reviewed. The designer of a bridge needs to know the strength of his steel or concrete and he needs to know how forces are transmitted through structures.... A biologist studying an animal or plant structure cannot understand it fully without the same sort of knowledge."--The Quarterly Review of Biology
