Review:

"The introductory chapter does a handsome job of explaining what Mechanical Engineering is and what Mechanical Engineers do...it draws the potential student a very accurate picture of the profession while also drawing the student more deeply into the excitement of Mechanical Engineering."

"I believe the author does an excellent job of taking his audience along at a comfortable and appropriate pace. Additionally, he does a good job of building his reader's knowledge base as he proceeds through the text. The author's communication skills are excellent."
