Having said all that though, it's far better than many other similar books I've looked at, is based on UK/European standards and represents good value for money compared to trying to claw some of the information contained in it from the BSI at exorbitant prices. If you were to combine this with more a more theoretical reference book, you'd probably have the best "pocket" reference library you could manage with what's currently available.
It is also a fantastic reference book for things as diverse as fittings to thread sizes to beam strengths. To those of us who have gently aged to the point where our original education is something in the dim past, this book acts as a wonderful refresher if you are a mechanical engineer of any type, from the hobbyist to the professional.
One thing to note. This might be called a pocket book but it certainly would not fit in any pocket in any trousers I own.
Overall this should be on the shelf of anyone involved in mechanical engineering.
A very useful book for the engineers shelf.
There are other engineer's pocket books out there, they certainly contain the obvious information that's commonly used, but at little difference in the price, you get a lot more book for your money, and a lot more technical information. Look at the index on the book preview to see all the different aspects that the book covers.
Containing a variety of simplified diagrams and brief explanations, there aren't massive sections of text to get lost in, even if there is a few good pages to get you started at the beginning of a topic to explain the subject matter.
As someone just starting out, this was great for me, but I can imagine it would still be a good reference guide for those in the industry.

Good desk reference, no where near as comprehensive as texts like the machinery handbook. Pretty good nonethelessPublished 11 months ago by djmr
