I bought this book to complete an Open UNiversity engineering project course. I must say that it is possibly the most detailed engineering book i have ever used. I have the US imperial version in PDF form and it was this that prompted me to purchase the SI version. Well recomended for anyone considering a good reference during engineering studies. It would be very usefull in assignments as it provides examples with anwsers.

An invaluable reference for anyone studying an Engineering Degree. Covers all types of load and stress analysis, deflection, stiffness, loading and failure. Also covers design elements such as shafts, bearings, gears etc and their related calculations.

2.0 out of 5 stars Important Note about Edition 24 Jan. 2008
By Brad Machen III - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
As is quite apparent from the one review of the hardcover edition (and from my machine design professor repeatedly referring to this as a reference book), this isn't the best textbook from which to learn the material in the first place, but it has every formula you'll ever need (well, maybe not...). However, there is one very important fact to note if you are considering buying this book for a class. It is NOT identical to the hardcover 8th edition; all problems and examples are in SI units (often with significantly different numbers), and the problem numbers are not necessarily the same (one cannot help but suspect that this is intentional on the part of the publisher, since it means that the cheaper paperback edition cannot be easily substituted for the hardcover edition). If you will need this book for homework, be aware of this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Machine Design review 5 Jan. 2011
By Lauren Jackson - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This book has many typos and confusing information contained in it. This book didn't really help me learn anything about machine design. The examples are way too confusing and they pull formulas from multiple chapters to solve an example problem.

Haven't gotten too far in the book, but so far, it's a very organized, well written book.
