The book does a great job of introducing student to manufacturing.
The text covers all relevant topics and the order is logical. The
quality and accuracy of the photos are excellent!
The content of this book are accurate, up-to-date, and complete. The artwork and photographs are very impressive. Our students are able to use these examples in helping with the hands on work in our program.
This has been my favorite text since I have been teaching this class. Colorful, Good separation of topics, Good overall flow of information. I do not know of a book of this caliber on the market.
