This book should not need to be updated every other year. Technical drawing is a dying art and not much has changed. The publish date of this book is late 2008, Just over a year old from when I purchased it, yet many of the pictures were taken in the 1970's. If you must purchase this book for a class you will be able to get by with an older edition.

The content of this book however is good, the examples and project are challenging and I did learn from this book.

Folks yall know were forevermore braggin about th fine products we get at Amazon. Well, this is no exception let me tell yew!!! We got it six months early for th 18 year old for his first course in draftin. Only they don't call it draftin anymore, it's all on computer and they call it CAD. If ya don't know what that means then yer probably a wanker and don't need ta be readin this review. Close out Amazon right now and go look at some cats on Youtube. If yer still here let me tell yew about this book. We wanted th 18 year old ta get a head start on his draftin course and this book was required. Why ya may ask would they want this book when they got tutorials in AutoCAD, Solidworks and th like. Well, it just so happens that this book has a wealth a practice drafwins in it an ya don't have ta draw them by hand. Ya can use AutoCAD. Not only that but folks come on descriptive geometry is descriptive geometry; ellipses is ellipses and many a th techniques ya use ta draw such by hand can be used in drawing with a computer. Not only that but it give ya all sorts a accepted practices such as line width and th like that th AutoCAD books and such don't go into. They expect ya ta know this. They're just tryin ta teach ya autocad. So all you buddin machinists and engineers and designers out there. Ya not goin ta cheat reality. Ya got ta know it all. Now, how does this book compare with some old classics? Well, I guess th best a th classics is Technical Drawing by Giesecke. Now folks Giesecke is one fine book for learnin technical drawin. We started all th kiddies off on it. We got one a th old copies, sixth edition or somethin', You know, th one with th pictures a dweebs in ties an white shirts doin draftin. Well, as I said all th kiddies started off doin a technical drawin class in homeschool. Some liked it, some didn't. Giesecke has some very simple drawin and they grow in complexity. We took advantage a that and schooled our young'uns in technical drawin up ta their limit and no further. For learnin draftin th old fashioned way, ya can't beat Giesecke! But this book by Goetsch!!! Now that's a whole nuther thing!!! As I said ya got yer basic drawings, how ta draw a circle ellipse etc but then ya got a section on geometric dimensioning and tolerancing that's near worth th price a th book. Now, ya just can't get enough GD&T folks! And then this book relates it directly ta drawin'. Ya got about 30 exercises most a them drawins in this sections that ya have ta apply GD&T principles to. AWESOME!!!! And it's just more up to date than Giesecke. So, if ya just want ta learn ta do technical drawin and ya can find a copy a Giesecke for thirty cents like we did, get and enjoy. I know th kiddies love it. But, if yer serious about draftin or yer class requires it grab yerself a copy of Technical Drawing and Engineering Communication. Ya won't be disappointed!!!! Holy S***!!!

This book is just what I needed. I needed some extra help in a design class and this book was recommended. It has been a great resource for information and has very detailed illustrations. Would recommend to anyone taking a design class.
