Book Description

January 29, 2010 0073529281 978-0073529288 9
Shigley’s Mechanical Engineering Design is intended for students beginning the study of mechanical engineering design. Students will find that the text inherently directs them into familiarity with both the basics of design decisions and the standards of industrial components. It combines the straightforward focus on fundamentals that instructors have come to expect, with a modern emphasis on design and new applications.

The ninth edition of Shigley’s Mechanical Engineering Design maintains the approach that has made this book the standard in machine design for nearly 50 years.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good book, HORRIBLE KINDLE VERSION January 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The kindle version of this book is properly awful. I am shocked that Amazon released this book in the .azw format and not the .azw4 format (which is basically a .pdf). The .azw4 format would have made this much better: like looking at the printed book. The .azw format ruins it, makes the page break in awkward places, and the kindle application does not allow you to scroll continuously. DO NOT BUY OR RENT THE KINDLE VERSION OF THIS BOOK.

5.0 out of 5 stars First go to book as a professional August 23, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book, not because it was required for school, but as I was trying to prepare for job interviews, I realized a lot of topics that this book covered, I had minimal knowledge of. I went through it a bit and realized that there were many subject areas that I thought were simpler were indeed more complicated.

I am now employed full time as a mechanical engineer, and anytime I have a question on something like gear design, failure analysis, fatigue life, and so forth, this book is my first stop. This book is easily the most used "textbook" at my work place.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mechanical Engineering Students thoughts November 27, 2010
By B. Fox
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is good, but there are a number of problems that I have with it. First, the writing within the text is sometimes too dense, technical and not straight forward enough for the undergraduate engineering student, making it hard to read. Second, there are not enough footnotes and/or annotations for students to make connections between the different equations, which, in fact, do relate to each other. Last, there is the problem with application of gear design to CAD programs, which renders the chapter on gear design useless to the student. In short, this class is all about who is teaching from the text and not the text because of the flaws mentioned above.

However, the book does have concrete, clear examples of the application of properties and equations in the text.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful Book April 11, 2014
By NicK
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
No clear readable text. Jumps from equations to complex problems without any explanation. All the assumptions in this textbook would take years of study to understand and to make a smooth transition through the chapters. Beware of international editions being sold on here as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Reference Book August 31, 2012
Format:Hardcover
I used this book in my sophomore year of college and it is one of the most useful reference books I've ever used. While it can be difficult to learn material directly from the text, it is extremely valuable as a reference tool. I highly recommend this book for all mechanical engineers who work primarily on the 'dry' mechanical side. It provides a very good overview of failure analysis and is also very helpful in determining constraints for parts.

Overall: Great book to use as a reference!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good advanced Mechanics book April 29, 2011
Format:Hardcover
This book is used for me for two different semesters. One for Solid Mechanics and one for Machine Design. The book it decent but it is no book by Hibbler. Some of the units in this book looked like it was wrote by two different people in two different countries.

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT the same as the physical 9th Edition March 26, 2014
By Jared
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book to keep on my tablet thinking that it would be a convenient way to take notes and read while in the classroom. After the first homework submission, my professor called me into his office and asked where I obtained the assigned homework problems. I showed him my edition, and he compared it to the physical 9th edition. Apparently none of the problems in the electronic 9th edition are the same as the physical 9th edition. (ok, some of them are the same, but most of them are not)

Honestly, I feel robbed. I expected better from Amazon, and from the Publisher. Book prices are outrageous enough on top of tuition costs. To end up with a book that has the same title and edition, but is not the same within the pages is ethically wrong. If you are looking to buy this book as a class requirement, it is NOT the same book as the physical 9th edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars Engineering book fail March 2, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The company sent me a soft copy of the book in black and white. It is completely different than the picture advertises.

I honestly could have printed my PDF file instead of paying for this one.

Extremely disappointed and leery to purchase anymore engineering books online. On a student income, a $50 and up book is a considerable investment.

Student worker wages: $7.50 before taxes

Hours worked to by this book: about 8-10

Satisfaction: 0
