Chapters are nothing more than a long string of either pointless or convoluted information about the field of materials science and far too many cheeky British jokes/puns that are absolutely insulting in a college-level book (from my prospective: the author seems to be poking fun at the reader's supposed "sub-sophomoric" knowledge of his field).
If possible, do not buy this book! If your class mandates purchasing this book consider switching classes or taking the required class at another university - you will save yourself a fair amount of time and money.
As a lecturer in the field I highly recommend this book.
