The book by Avraham Horney covers the very fundamental physical principles of bearing selection, addressing such the important aspects as lubrication, proper arrangement and housing, advanced materials for fabrication of the bearings, design computations and others. As declared by the author, he had four main obectives. The frst one was to provide readers with the theory of the bearing design presented in a bit simplified for, and with some emphasis made on the basic concepts. The second obective was to make the text self-contained so that the students and engineers could study it without taking pre-requisite advanced courses. The third objective was to emphasize the practical concepts. The last, fourth, objective, was to encourage readers to innovate unique solutions and design ideas related to the design of bearings.
