The first edition of this handbook was highly recommended by this reviewer … [T]his handbook is almost certain to go through many future editions since it will remain invaluable to almost every engineer. One of the handbook's great virtues is that it provides an introduction to branches of the profession that an engineer, trained in another branch, might have to learn about in short order. … Summing Up: Highly recommended.
- CHOICE, Feb. 2005

…this volume is an excellent reference for broad coverage of the discipline of engineering. This volume is recommended for all libraries serving engineers or engineering students.
E-Streams, Volume 8, 2005

… a fundamental work in general engineering reference … shares the very fine organization and multiple access points of other recent CRC Press handbooks…Highly recommended for academic library reference collections supporting engineering programs and for sci/tech reference collections of large public libraries.
-Science & Technology Libraries

a ready reference for the practicing engineer in industry, government, and academia…The book has a very clear structure…designed to provide practical answers to most situations arising in engineering practice…the present work fills successfully the gap between simple collections of engineering formulae and specialized monographs, and thus can be highly recommended to all professional engineers …
