I despise this book with a passion and it is not only because of the subject:
1) WAY too long. Like 6,000,000 more pages than necessary
2) Pedagogically unsound
This author should stop writing textbooks. By the twelfth edition many of the errors and inconsistencies, babbeling, etc. should have been corrected. I'm not entirely sure what is wrong with a publisher who allows this junk to be sold to the detriment of students.
Look for a copy of Schaum's Outline of Theory and Problems of ENGINEERING MECHANICS, Statics and Dynamics by McLean should you have the misfortune of using this book.

It's Hibbeler, therefore amazing
By Mark Twain
Hibbeler writes the best engineering text book(s) in his area, again. Content is brief, but well thought-out and informative. The examples are very helpful and contain references to very real engineering problems. The chapter summaries provided by the author, usually missing in similar texts, are also very helpful; they make for great FE study material. Hard to find anything to complain about.

Wonderful text book
By David H.
The book is well written to cover all key areas in Statics and Dynamics. The book offers many practical problems for reader to check if you through understand the material. The examples were good to help reader to understand the concepts and procedures to solve a practical problem. I wish the book has all answers for the problem sets. I also hope the publishing company can offer solution manual to assist as additional book.
