Callister Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering: An Interactive Text wins Textbook Excellence Award

SAN ANTONIO, June 9, 2001 ? The Text and Academic Authors Association awarded Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering: An Interactive Text, by William D. Callister, Jr., the 2001 Textbook Excellence Award (Texty) during the association's awards banquet. The book is published by John Wiley & Sons. Among judges' comments: "This book appears to be much better than the text I used in college. The figures are nicely done, and a second color is used effectively. The text is clearly written and well-designed.
A superior textbook on materials. Many outstanding illustrations. The inclusion of ceramics and polymers is a plus for modern engineers."

TAA created the Textbook Excellence Award in 1992 to recognize current textbooks and learning materials. To be nomiated, a work must carry a copyright date for the previous or current year. Entries are not limited to books but may include learning materials of all mediums.

The Text and Academic Authors Association was established in 1987 for people interested in developing and publishing all kinds of educational materials, including textbooks, software, videos, monographs, reference books, newsletters, multimedia CD-ROM disks and others. TAA represents text and academic authors in matters involving them, including taxes, copyright and better appreciation of their work within academe. The association is also committed to improving the quality of educational materials.

1Bogus and incomplete/insufficient content!
By Larry Martin
It's seldom that I receive garbage from Amazon and its suppliers but this happens to be one of those exceptions. I don't really hate the book but I do hate the fact that THIS version strongly depends on the CD/DVD. The CD/DVD in the past contains solutions to problems. However, this issue not only relies on the CD/DVD for problem solutions but the CD/DVD contains valuable textual content which is what I was expecting and need. The printed book alone is of less value than that of a paper weight. I suggest to others that you DO NOT PURCHASE this version without the supporting CD/DVD! The seller conveniently neglected to mention this valuable little detail!

5Excellent book, excellent price
By abhinav
This book has all that you would find in the more expensive US version. I was hesitant to buy it at first but it comes at a much cheaper rate and has the exact same content, page to page. I would recommend it for all those looking for precise and accurate knowledge about materials, it cover everything -atomic structure and bonding , metallic and ceramic structures, polymers, ceramics, defects in solids, diffuion in solids,mechanical properties in solids and almost all in great detail. POST this book if you're a material science student at college. Its a real guide and I have studied from it for all my exams uptil junior year.
Callister is a brilliant writer and this book shows his true abilities.
