Customer Reviews

Everything was good, early arrival of the book, new, no stain.
Patrick D. Nwokolo
Although there are examples on how to solve problems, there isn't explanations on why you use those formulas.
Student
I would recommend this book to any Mechanical Engineering student.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

This book helps you analyze complex parts. The first section is on the material components that parts are made of. The second section gives you an in depth analysis of static loading, and concentration factors of stress. Then you have fatigue analysis of parts. This ranges from simple shear on beams, to stress on bearings, and gear teeth. I haven't had the chance to read the remainder of the book, but at the end, there is a case study of the fatigue analysis of a transmission. If you're a Mechanical Engineering major I recommend this book.
