"Excellent textbook for beginners."--Hsien Yang Yeh, California State University, Long Beach
"This book is unique and different from other books on the mechanics of continuous fiber reinforced composite materials, because it succeeds in meeting its objectives....Easy to read and succeeds in presenting the subject material in a highly organized and effective approach. The book is recommended as a teaching textbook for a senior undergraduate or graduate course."--Applied Mechanics Review
"I really like the application-type problems following each chapter. Up-to-date examples with applications are good!"--David R. Veazie, Clark Atlanta University

Great composite book
This book is very helpful but you need to have a solid background in mechanics of material. The authors assume you know the basics and do not elaborate much on them. Very good examples and problems. A good reference.

Less than Very Good
By M Lami
I bought this book to help me with my Master of Engineering study in aerospace engineering.
On each and every subject, the book jumps quickly into mathematical methods and derivation without sufficient physical or engineering description.
It may be considered as a good reference for the formulae and equations for composites, but never a good book that explains or teaches the engineering or physical aspects of the mechanics of composites.
It is a classical problem with engineering professors and authors who are more in the "calculus world" than the key engineering concepts.
