5-0 out of 5 stars Architectual Graphic Standards February 23, 2006
The most up to date technical information for the architectual and construction community.A must have source of information.

4-0 out of 5 stars Regarding 1934 reprint of 1st edition: good resource
This is an excellent resource for anyone looking to understand traditional building materials and methods. The printing is excellent. The actual plates from the original work are valuable not only for the technical information they contain, but the artistry with which they were composed is superb.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have Step-by-Step Guide on Professional Techniques and "tricks of the trade

5-0 out of 5 stars So far so good - Updated
After buying the Black and Decker Home Wiring guide and finding conflicting information, I decided I needed a more thorough reference (but didn't want to have to decipher the NEC).After a bit of research, I decided to buy "Electrical Wiring Residential".Within the first hour of reading it, I had two major questions answered that the B&D book didn't even attempt to address.While I've only had it for a day, I'm already 100% more satisfied with it than I was with the B&D book.My advice: buy this book instead of the less expensive ones if you paln on doing your own wiring and want it to be to code.
5-0 out of 5 stars Best reference for teaching I've ever used
I teach NEC articles dealing with low-voltage issues and grounding to custom electronics installers.This is by far the best book I have ever used as a reference and I've seen a lot! The text is very clear, the illustrations are amazingly good.I have spoken with Ray Mullin the auther on many occassions and am always impressed with not only his knowledge but on the TLC (tender loving care) he puts into each edition. You can't go wrong with this reference. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Intuitive, clear and concise
James Johnson's Introduction to Fluid Power is the kind of book students want. There is a lot to like about this book: First off, the language used is not the "expert talking down to you" tone that many college texts seem to enjoy (and students hate). Each concept is presented in plain, logical, and easy to understand terms. There is no abundance of 10-cent words and aloof language for the sake of sounding superior. That isn't to say the topic is "dumbed-down" at all, it is just easy to read and written in a plain-speaking manner that makes the reader feel like he's listening to a lecture by a competent, knowledgeable, down-to-earth, and enthusiastic speaker. James obviously knows his subject intimately, understands is fully, and knows where students may have confusion or misunderstanding and he works hard to make it clear as to what is right and what is wrong. It is rare to find an instructional text where the author remembers what it is like to be new to the topic, outside of the "For Dummies" series and similarly styled books. This book possesses that level of intuitive simplicity. This is the clearest and easiest to read and understand college text that I have ever used.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Reference
Of the many reference and educational books I have read, this is one of the best. This book, the NEC Code and Practical Electrical Wiring by Herbert P. Richter and Frederic P. Hartwell have given me a thorough understanding of the NEC and the essential things I wanted to know before wiring a new residence.Highly recommended.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not a handbook
I would NOT recommend this book to any electrician, engineer, or architect.It is extremely difficult to comprehend.Gaining any practical information from this book is futile. I have had the twelfth edition over ten years. I used it to study for the electricians exam.I hated it then.Since that time, I have found it to be a very poor reference book. The thirteenth edition is no better.I understand why some electrician training schools might use this book - it is very comprehensive. It would make a good reference for a classroom lesson plan, but not a direct teaching tool.If you want to learn the material in this book, get the National Electric Code Handbook (and related materials published by the NFPA) and appropriate textbooks. FYI - I am a licensed electrician and a registered professional engineer.

2-0 out of 5 stars A patchwork monster
Another motley McGraw-Hill product. First copyrighted in 1913. The author appears to have died prior to 1976, and the book has been maintained by hired help. Don't try to use this as a textbook; treat it as a reference only. You never really know whether some item is up to date or 50 or 80 years old. Examples: There is a lot of treatment of two-phase (yup, 90 degrees) power, including at 25 hertz, and of multi-kilovolt series incandescent streetlighting, plus knob and tube wiring. Also, it is stated that the highest radio frequency in use is 30 megahertz, whereas in reality we're up to 1,000 or 2,000 times that just now. This book is a curiousity; charming if you have the cash, but if you don't, maybe you should be getting something more coherent.

IT seems this book is a CD for use of a Wireless Area Network (WAN), so how can it possibly be hardcover?And why is is three times more expensive than the normal edition, but still looks like it is the same 10th edition material on CD ONLY?
2-0 out of 5 stars Overrated
"Mark's Handbook" is one of those books you hear other students in college talk about like it's a must have that you'll use for the rest of your life. But it's not. I bought this book, and six years out of college I barely ever crack it open. It's packed with information, but it's so general that you can't get any real-world specific information out of it. It's like a restaurant reviewer who can tell you that "New York has some great Italian restaurants" but doesn't give you the name of any of them. You're much better off skipping this book and buying one that's more specific to your particular field. As an example, the mechanical engineer is much better off with Shigley's "Mechanical Engineering Design". ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book for learning GD&T
This book is an excellent substitute or supplement to a course in geometric dimensioning & tolerancing.GD&T was not taught at the college I attended and this book helped me quickly get up to speed.Within days of using this I was creating proper drawings that accuratly communicated my company's requirements for cast parts.However, the book is probably better suited as a learning tool than it is a reference as it often took some time to look up and find the answer for specific questions.

5-0 out of 5 stars Useful reference
Standard Handbook of Machine Design, 3rd Edition editedby Joseph Shigley, Charles Mischke, Thomas H. Brown (Standard Handbook of Machine Design: McGraw-Hill Professional) The definitive machine design handbook for mechanical engineers, product designers, project engineers, design engineers, and manufacturing engineers covers every aspect of machine construction and operation. The 3rd edition of the Standard Handbook of Machine Design will be redesigned to meet the challenges of a new mechanical engineering age. In addition to adding chapters on structural plastics and adhesives, which are replacing the old nuts bolts and fasteners in design, the author will also update and streamline the remaining chapters.
3-0 out of 5 stars thorough and outdated
I own both Shigley's books on Machine Design, Mechanical Engineering Design (which I would rate 5/5) and this handbook. I find this handbook is very extensive in the topics it covers, just about everything pertaining to Machine Design, but fails to elaborate in many of the key areas. Furthermore, many formulas are presented, but there are not enough examples on their use. My greatest complaint though, has to do with the print, it seems as if I had in my hand a book written out in the 60s. Drawing are dirty and unclear in many situations, tables seem as if they were cutout from another book and pasted here, then photocopied (the first drawing in the book, a man, seems as if it was photocopied on a lousy photocopier from an old newspaper), and the typeface in the graphs is plainly outdated. I understand late J. Shigley is no longer among us, but Mischke should modernize the quality of presentation when deciding to launch new editions. Overall, I recommend Rothbart's handbook over this one.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Reference for a Machine Designer
This text is an excellent reference for any design engineer working in the machinery field.It fills in where the Machinery's Handbook falls short.The text is basically (I am oversimplifying) an expanded version of theShigley McGraw-Hill Machine Design Textbook.My only complaint is that thediscussion on the strength of welded joints is missing. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Valuable Reference Source on Lasers and it's applications.
The Institute of Physics Publishing is to be congratulated on publishing this three-volume set titled: Handbook of Laser Technology and Applications, edited by Colin E. Webb and Julian D C Jones.This vast collection of articles on lasers and it's technological applications is the work of over 170 international experts, many of whom are world leaders in their respective areas of lasers and laser technology.Volume I is of 301 pages but it can serve as a great graduate level text outlining the basic principles oflasers, laser beams and nonlinear optics.The articles are very lucidly written and well illustrated with diagrams and references.I would most certainly use it for an introductory graduate level course in laser physics.Volume II which covers pages 305 to 1555 is a veritable encyclopedia on the operating characteristics and mechanisms of almost all kinds of lasers with it's optical and electronic components.Every chapter is accompanied with an exhaustive bibliography at it's end.Volume III which covers pages 1559 to 2725 covers a wide range of applications of lasers to all aspects of engineering and technology.Again massive bibliographical references accompany each article in this volume. This 3-volume set should be a must buy for any institution dealing with lasers at any level especially those interested on the latest references in laser applications research.The index at the back is exhaustive and well documented.Congratulations to the editors on a superb job. ...

Reviews (107)

3-0 out of 5 stars An important if flawed book
Make no mistake. This is an important book. Zeldman is a leader in the web standards movement and his voice is worth paying attention to. On the plus side, he offers some good talking points for using with bosses and clients on why designing with web standards is a good thing. He also gives reasonable and well thought out examples and case studies of well designed sites.
4-0 out of 5 stars Lots of knowledge, somewhat redundant
I got this book a while back and did learn a lot from it, which some of the tips and techniques I still use today. However I did find the book to be very redundant in some of the explanations and techniques. I did however like the fact that real world examples where given and there was no browser favoring from the author which is really good considering a book isn't suppose to be an ad like so many other authors seem to think.
4-0 out of 5 stars 2nd Edition Review: a great reference with a few chapters of rambling in the beginning
To say Jeffrey Zeldman is a character is an understatement. However, he's earned his right, in a way, to stand in his soapbox and preach about web standards, since he's been pushing them for quite a while now. However, the book suffers from one main problem: it takes over 100 pages to get to the point (designing with web standards). In the first few chapters he goes on for a while about what's wrong with the state of the web, what things are being done violating the standards, etc. to the point that it gets a little old.

It's an excellent reference book, covering everything that is needed for interior design drafting: from line weights to scale, dimensioning, plans, elevations, sections, checklists, furniture and finish schedules, contract documents, and the list goes on. I highly recommend this book for students of interior design and practising designers alike. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Engineering and Design for today's ANSI/ASME/ISO standards
This book describes it all, gives the rules of the road for the changes that have occured in the last number of years in ANSI callouts, Geometric Tolerancing, ASME, and ISO practices.I've been in this business since '76 on the drafting board, and since '86 with CADD (Computer Aided Drafting & Design) and have watched the skills of knowing how to draft (a distinct language of its own) and the elements of design and engineering fall by the wayside in general as the focus now by our educators and companies is more about learning to and running a CADD program, making a picture than following the skills and practices of drafting, design, and engineering.Students today need to get back to "walking" (learning drafting) before they "run" with a CADD program.This book addresses what is necessary to create drawings and design the parts as they should be.I highly recommend it to anyone conscientiously wanting to really learn to do the job right and/or to hone their skills.

3-0 out of 5 stars Exhaustive theory, but inaccurate exercises
As an all-inclusive reference on Drafting theory and practice, this is as good a book as any. However: Having used it as a teaching text, I found an inexcusable number of mistakes in the end-of-chapter exercises. The dimensions simply don't stack up! My advice: Go over them yourself first, time permitting, before assigning them to your classes. Perhaps (hopefully) this has been/will be corrected in later editions. Also: Board drafting is a dying art. Thus, while opening chapters on theory and sketching methods should be retained, more emphasis must now be placed on CAD (not "CADD"); specifically, 3D CAD and downstream processes. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The true value of this book . . .
I can only speculate that this book is, as was one of the previous editions I've read, used and loved, is bound to provide an exceptional foundational education in the skill of technical (engineering design) drawing/drafting for those with the natural aptitude for freehand drawing. Readers will indeed learn about and develop precision drawing skills--whether drawing with instruments or computer.
1-0 out of 5 stars Profoundly Frustrating
As a freshman engineering major, I have been compelled to use Technical Drawing for a graphics course.This has been a profoundly frustrating experience.It seems that the authors, in their zeal to attain unto the dry, lifeless style characteristic of most professional engineering publications, also unintentionally created a text which is superlatively unclear.

3-0 out of 5 stars Engineer's review
I had an old version and replace it with this version.Not much updating.Still a good reference for electrical distribtion engineers but was disappointed with the lack of topics fromn the last 20 years.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for your EE library
I checked out the 12th edition of this book from the library and found it to be an excellent resource.Very informative covering detailed aspects of many areas of EE design.Lots of figures, tables and pictues showing you what equipment and systems look like if you've never seen them before.The 14th edition is very similiar, only larger pages and updated figures and content.This is an excellent resource. ...
