Could the book be improved - of course, It was written in 2007. If/when Rob Thompson creates an updated edition, I will be among the first to purchase it. The biggest shock factor was the price. With my Amazon Prime membership, I bought this book for $62 making it a no-brainer purchase decision. Enjoy.
This is an excellent book because:
It is well-organized. You can use it as a reference, or read it like a novel. There are two main sections: processes and materials. Processes is further broken into Forming, Cutting, Joining, and Finishing functions.
It is modern- it was first published in 2007.
Each processes illustrated has a table with bullet lists with the important information about the process. (on the "Blow Molding" process, it shows "Costs, typical applications, suitability, quality, related processes, and speed".
Each process has drawing illustrating the process and a case study.
Really, this is a great book, for anyone in the product development industry.
Wonderful visuals, examples of very neat products, and thorough explanations. I read it cover to cover.
Works great as a textbook, a coffee table book, or a gift. I use it now as a reference in my engineering work.
Very solid hardcover book with high quality color pages. You will be impressed.
