Editorial Reviews

Review

Teachers Manual available. -- The publisher, John Wiley & Sons --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Publisher

Designed to emphasize the fundamental principles, this book includes abundant applications to demonstrate and develop logical orderly methods of procedure. Instead of deriving numerous formulas for all types of problems, the authors have stressed the use of free-body diagrams and the equations of equilibrium, together with the geometry of the deformed body and the observed relations between stress and strain, for the analysis of the force system action of a body. Most chapters conclude with a section on design principles, a summary of important concepts plus examples, homework and review problems. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Also, it came in a timely fashion, works well for my class.

The book came in really nice condition, basically brand-new and took about 2 weeks to actually arrive at my doorstep.
Matt Furman
The back contains some answers to random questions, but I was really expecting more out of it.

This book covers the material well. Some of the later chapters tend to loose the reader with a bunch of jargon. Overall, the book facilitated my learning of the material. I am still wondering about a solutions manual to accompany the text.

I really tried to follow this book, but I had a hard time keeping up with the poorly written text and mediocre examples. There are lots of good, well-written problems, but no way to see them solved out step by step. The back contains some answers to random questions, but I was really expecting more out of it. There is no online site for students to accompany the text, and I really just could not wrap my head around the material as a beginning engineering student. Maybe this text would be preferable for someone with a background in statics or a foundation in the material already. If this is a required text for your class, I might consider some other supplementary material...

At the bookstore on campus, I bought this book for about 120$. Buying it on Amazon only cost me 40$, which it the best deal I've ever gotten with anything. The book came in really nice condition, basically brand-new and took about 2 weeks to actually arrive at my doorstep. That's a little longer then I would have hoped, but I was still able to sell my bookstore statics book back to the college for a full refund so no real problem. For a third of the price this is a deal that can't be passed up.

I'm methodically working through this book as I prepare for a class on structural analysis. Having had mechanics of materials and statics, I find this book to be very well written with clear, succinct explanations of the theory at hand. I recommend it.

Format: Hardcover
This has got to be one of the worst textbooks I have ever used. There are no real world examples covered in the text. Everything is abstract. The examples are few and far between and the book doesn't provide enough guidance to deal with problems you haven't seen before.

Do yourself a favor and just google all the contents of this book. You'll get the same abstract diagrams that have no real basis in reality.

These textbooks are supposed to teach you how to think to solve these problems. It fails, miserably. Having taken another statics class with different text it was unbelievable how much worse this version was. The author should be ashamed of himself. Truly an awful coverage of statics and mechanics of materials.
