Not helpful ... at all
By Pamela R. Henry
This is not a good book.
The author frequently describes the reasoning for the layout of the book. I did not buy a book entitled "Engineering Materials" to learn about the reasons you chose the order of the topics. I want to learn about engineering materials. Tell me about engineering materials, their properties, and selection. Leave your thoughts on the writing process to your friends and coworkers who ask about these things.
Rarely do the answers to the Chapter Questions fall under the section into which they are divided. They are also commonly not carefully answered in the text. For instance, a question may ask for the definition of a specific engineering term that is never defined. Although an inference can be made from the text surrounding the term, that is very different from a precise definition.
Spelling and grammatical errors abound. Page 433, for example, purchasing is not spelled "perchasing".

Great reference book
I purchased this for a class. Great reference book. I have actually used it for reference at work and intend to keep it in my office (Engineering Manager).

This is the worst Engineering book I have ever read
This is the worst Engineering book I have ever read. A monkey with a pen could write better book than those Idiots. Astonishing it has many topics but they are all scattered through the book. You have to read this book a few times from the beginning to the end and from the end to the beginning and still is lacking of proper information. You hardly can find any answers for the questions at the end of each chapter. This book should not be taught at any universities.
