The book by Kemper Lewis and Jonathan Wickert will provide readers, especially students, with an excellent introduction to the emerging field of mechanical engineering that will give them due appreciation for how exactly mechanical engineers design the relevant hardware building and improving societies all around the planet. The theoretical part of the book is supplemented with so many illustrations, all of them are helpful and instructive. The figures contained in the volume are not complicated, and such approach allows the book to be used by the beginner-level students, who will definitely get much better understanding of the basic concepts. The readers will like the level of the material included in the book and its layout. The publication includes numerous engineering problems and live examples; it explains mechanical engineering in both quantitative and qualitative sense and highlights the various technical principles; note that all the information is up-to-date. Overall, we would say that this volume is one of the best available for beginners, taking into account the way of presentation of the material. Subject material has been divided into eight chapters covering the basics of the mechanical engineering and design, problem-solving and communication, forces acting in machines and structures, fluid engineering, materials/stresses, motion transmission, thermal/energy systems, power transmission. The appendices cover the Greek alphabet and review of the trigonometry.
