Product description

Review

From the first edition: 

"Both interesting and intriguing, this book should prove a valuable resource for those starting out in design or engineering...it is also fun to browse through." - Science Magazine, June 2003 "It is not often that I find it difficult to stop reading a book ... the word inspirational is used in various parts of (this) book -- and how appropriate this word is to this textbook ... For both students and designers, Materials & Design is a gold mine. In short, I thoroughly recommend this book" - Building Engineer, May 2003
