Engineering Review by Halley
My first experience with Shigley's Mechanical Engineering was in college when the book was required for one of my classes. This was back around the 1972 time frame. I kept that book and used it, along with several other colleagues, to the point where the book was falling to pieces. At this point I decided to brake down and buy the latest version which has much more information. If you do any kind of stress analysis work, Shigley's is a must have book.
