Actually this is the second time I've bought this book. I stupidly loaned it out and then never got it back. This time I bought it for my Kindle and tablet so one way or another I've got it.

What it's not. Slap bang up to date Biblical sized technical tome.

What it is. A great general purpose introduction and reference book to give you a reasonable knowledge of hydraulic systems. If you have already got this knowledge and regularly work on hydraulics then there is a good chance you know everything in this book. If like me as a marine engineer you deal with hydraulics but not every day, then you need something to refer to now and again. This for me serves that purpose at a modest price. There are far more comprehensive books out there which are eye wateringly expensive and not in electronic format making them no suitable for travelling with.

This for me allows me to refresh my brain when I have to read a drawing and fault find and it's easy, simple and ideal for that purpose.

There really is nothing on which to fault this book. It is clear, concise and lacks unnecessary verbosity.
It covers the physical phenomena involved in the application of hydraulics and pneumatics including all necessary formulae used in industry. It covers basic system components and describes their role and operation and should there be different types of component available it covers the advantages and disadvantages of them so one can make an educated choice. It gives some examples of simple systems and offers help with troubleshooting.
There are no doubt larger and more in-depth books available, but for general reference and student use this book is ideal.

This book is ideal to learn about pneumatics and hydrolics. It is easy to understand and the illustrations are well made. Definitely worth the money!
A great book to go with it is The Pneumatics of Hero of Alexandria. Amazing what people came up with 2000 years ago!

Currently I'm working on a medical ventilator but I'm a software engineer and have no training in either pneumatics or hydraulics. This book looked like a good bet for giving me a quick overview of practical pneumatics. For that purpose it is fine but I'm not qualified to say whether it is any good for pneumatics/hydraulics specialists.
