Still useful in 2012 12 July 2012
By Dennis C. DeYoung - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
You will find this to be a high quality publication. Nice binding, ribbon bookmark, thick qualtiy paper pages, and very colorful throughout. This was a great work in 2004 and is still useful today for people who want to understand much of the terminology in this industry. The illustrations and descriptions are written at a laymans level and are also a useful starting point for engineers.
