Callister Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering: An Interactive Text wins Textbook Excellence Award

SAN ANTONIO, June 9, 2001 — The Text and Academic Authors Association awarded Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering: An Interactive Text, by William D. Callister, Jr., the 2001 Textbook Excellence Award (Texty) during the association's awards banquet. The book is published by John Wiley & Sons. Among judges' comments: "This book appears to be much better than the text I used in college. The figures are nicely done, and a second color is used effectively. The text is clearly written and well-designed.
A superior textbook on materials. Many outstanding illustrations. The inclusion of ceramics and polymers is a plus for modern engineers."

TAA created the Textbook Excellence Award in 1992 to recognize current textbooks and learning materials. To be nomiated, a work must carry a copyright date for the previous or current year. Entries are not limited to books but may include learning materials of all mediums.

The Text and Academic Authors Association was established in 1987 for people interested in developing and publishing all kinds of educational materials, including textbooks, software, videos, monographs, reference books, newsletters, multimedia CD-ROM disks and others. TAA represents text and academic authors in matters involving them, including taxes, copyright and better appreciation of their work within academe. The association is also committed to improving the quality of educational materials.

Book Description:
