3You need to attend a class, cannot use this book solely
By Certified Amazon Buyer
This is the 2015 version of the book, 8th Edition.
What is the difference from last edition, 7th edition? What I noticed are different numbers in the questions: same question, but instead of 3cm, it can be 2cm now. Other than that, no noticeable amendment. If you have a class which need to use this book for homework question, I strongly recommend you buy it. (The right edition as your class required)
Generally, it has 4-5 pages for the theory, and about 3-4 simple examples. Most of the parts are questions, which are much harder than the examples.

The pictures in this book are printed well, which are easy to read, and they help you understand the questions. It is convenient to have equations and theory at the beginning of each section. The book is organized which helps you build knowledge from section to section.

This book does not have enough expression in each chapter. There are not much examples to cover the whole idea in the chapter. You will still notice "What can I do in this question" situation even you read through all examples in the chapter. If you read this book hoping to learn everything about statics, it's not working. Instead, it acts like a supplementary to lecture notes.
