4.0 out of 5 stars Design cook book for mechanical engineers, 17 April 2001
It must be quite hard , even for mechanical engineers, to design some mechanical devices that work exactly what we want. This book contains plenty of designs and drawings which can be implemented immediately. For example, tripping or stop mechanisms, reversing mechanisms, speed-changing mechanisms, etc. I found this book saves me a lot of time and gives me briliant idea in machine design.

4.0 out of 5 stars Art and Science are so closed together, 10 April 2001
The author has made amazing correlation between art and science. The symmetry of objects implies the beautiful of art !!! Many good observations by John Barrow raised the question how things in universe were constructed ? The limit of science is one of very interesting topic discussed in this book. If you like popular science you may like John Barrow.

5.0 out of 5 stars A review of John Barrow's past work, 10 April 2001
If you look at nature curiously and wonder about the truth of nature.This book will motivate you to be a good nature observer. The author has made good observation of the relationship between small objects (e.g. atoms, cells)and enormous objects (e.g. huge animals, galaxy). The arguments in the beginning of universe, theory of everything, thoroughly the existence of religion are discussed. However, this book summarised from the author's articles in some news papers and magazines. Some topics in this book have already appeared in his previous books. If you want to know how mathematician as John Barrow looks at the world, this book is a conclusion of all his past work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good start for studying finite element analysis, 10 April 2001
The authors seemed to have very good experience in developing finite element package. This book started with a fundamental concept and refreshing essential mathematics background. Most of popular topics in finite element analysis are included and well explained along with the programming techniques. If you are an expert in BASIC programming, this book would guide you to be able to develop your own finite element software !!! If you are Fortran or C programmers, the author also ported all of BASIC codes in this book to Fortran and C. The program converting AutoCAD DXF file to create finite element model is also included.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fundamental knowledge is well described, 10 April 2001
This book started with good explanation of basic knowledge in mechanics of materials along with intensive exercises (chapter 1-9). Advance subjects are well explained and discussed throughout chapter 10-15, such as introduction to finite element analysis,up-to-date failure criteria for materials and sufficient knowledge in fracture mechanics. The most challenging part in this book is exercises, which are very comprehensive and really motivated. This book suits very well for teaching undergraduate course .

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely suits for nonnative speaker of English, 10 April 2001
This book is definitely a writing cook book for nonnative speaker of English. I found many useful phrases that I can modify and use them for my thesis. This book also guided me to use appropriate words to construct the right sentences. It is a kit for survival in your thesis writing up.
