Summary: Excellent Engineering Book
The book version I purchased has a blue cover, not the green one pictured. But the appearence does not matter. This is an excellent engineering text that covers nearly all aspects of engineering (materials, electrical and even automotive). I highly recommend this text for those looking for a single engineering reference point.
Summary: The Timeless Engineering Handbook
This is a timeless Mechanical Engineering Handbook. I used it in college, and I use it when needed. The handbook is very general and does provide a lot of useful information. The key to this handbook is knowing where to look for information. Descriptions and explanations are kept brief and to the point. I like this. The explanations are just enough to help you understand the basics subject matter and point you in the right direction.
