Senturia's approach to some chapters strikes me as a little idiosyncratic, but he does convey the principles quite well. His love for the material shines through in a way that many authors cannot manage.
Unlike books on single topics, this text cannot be used as a definitive guide to anything. Because Sentuira only has only 30 pages or so for each of the very broad topics that he covers, he doesn't cover any of them in much depth. However, the reader does get a sense of the issues that each physical domain presents. For those who need to know more, Senturia provides a short list of further reading in each chapter. I think of this book as a comprehensive starting point that can help me determine what further investigation I need.
Aesthetically, the text is somewhat lacking. The small pages are cramped compared to those of larger-format texts, and the figures are subpar.
The sections on mathematical modeling are especially good, and the set of detailed examples at the end are clear and illustrative.
To name some drawbacks, the chapter on fabrication is maybe a bit out of date, and more solved practical exercises are missing.
