2.0 out of 5 stars Surprised by the Quality March 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have a Keyboard Kindle. I notice several reviews think this is pretty good. I found it lacking in several areas: 1. Diagrams referred to in the text are missing; 2. The text format has the appearance of lines formatted for a wider screen so line "wrap" with partial and full lines alternating; 3. Definitions tend to be jammed together giving a jumbled app0earance to the different entries.

In books explaining concepts and machines, the lack of diagrams to accompany textual descriptions I consider a serious flaw. Fortunately, has many of these type books WITH the diagrams. I highly recommend checking with them to see if they have what you want.

Exactly as stated, nothing is really missing from this book that I could think of. I like having it on my phone so I can manually search for words.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful Engineering Resource September 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This dictionary has some very important scientific
definitions like absolute temperature, absorption
and acoustic telegraphy. There are extensive
explanations of the concepts with relevant examples.

For instance, an acidometer is defined as a hydrometer
used to determine the specific gravity of an acid. This
volume would be useful as a supplemental reference book
for students and even practicing engineers. The presentation
would be more useful as a history of engineering text.

The author needs to do some reformatting of the
book because the contents are not presented in a
uniform manner for ease of reading. Otherwise, the
book has quite a number of interesting definitions of
classic engineering terms with plenty of examples!
