Nice Book, 21 Dec. 2008
an old classic book but still a good book.you won't regret buying it but it's not very expensive anyway.

VERY GOOD, 15 Aug. 2008
One of the best books on mechanics. I have mechanics of materials from ferdinand & beer as well and its difficult to compare which one is the best. Hibbeler's has more material ,the other has a slightly better approach for me.both great

very good book,explains the theory very well,has enough examples but some more for different cases would be useful.

i was about to buy mckenzie's book for EC5 but bought this one because it has more theory.mckenzie's is a more practical book and spends less pages on theory.i would give 5 stars if the examples were written as in mckenzie's book where the examples are as in a design office.overall a very good book,expensive though

this is a good book but it could be written more clear. The content is good enough but the layout doesnt make u wanna read it.

this isnt a book to learn theory but it explains briefly the theory and then has many examples,well presented and covers many methods.very good

A very good book, 14 July 2008
I found this book very good.if you work or study finite elements or generally mechanics you will find it very useful because it doesnt just give you huge formulas,it has examples and it helped me understand a lot more.have a look at the chapter titles and if its what you are looking for then i strongly believe the content will satisfy you.also,although its 'advanced' and hence has enough maths,its not very hard to follow.

average, 27 Jun. 2008
i would say this book is average.i like the books which have a format like stroud's books,with clear examples etc.i find several topics difficult to read compared to other books.

Great Book, 28 May 2008
I think this is a great book to learn the basics of the continuum mechanics. It actually describes several topics and despite the amount of equations there is an example for everything which makes it easy to understand.also,the first chapter is about the maths you will need and it is written so simple that makes you feel confident. recommended!

i have several books for seismic design but this is the best one.i use eurocode but this book is very helful if you want to learn seismic design if you dont know how to use a seismic code.the book is not to eurocode but it does not matter since you will learn seismic design and it will not be difficult to use eurocode's 8 formulas.most books cover the analysis only,this one covers the detailing very well.i think some codes are based on this book.
