Editorial Review...
"There are. . .attractive features of this book: the style is lucid; the drawings are well-annotated; the calculations are disaggregated enough to permit the reader to follow them with little effort; some aspects are discussed, especially the issue of product liability, that are infrequently covered in engineering design literature, in general, and texts, in particular; and its three appendices are useful, notably the one on frequently-asked questions and answers about fasteners. "
