This book has been written by Graham Kelly and demonstrates the great experience of the author and should be highly recommended for everyone studying vibration mechanics. The content of this volume will be providing them all with the clear explanations. The author has taken the applications-based approach implying the application of the engineering principles learnt by the students earlier while constructing a basis for the engineering design. The volume is providing reader with a brief technical review of the fundamental principles of dynamics keeping the notation and terminology consistent and applying the principles to derive math models of the dynamic systems. The above stated methods of application are consistent with the common dynamic texts. Numerous practical plus valuable pedagogical features are included in the text with the intention to aid the readers with retention and comprehension. For example, such features include the developments of the major benchmark problems, namely three of them, revisited in each of the chapters and making up the coherent chain that links all chapters of the publication. The learning outcomes have also been included in the book, together with the key summaries, formulae and equations, many solved examples with the emphasis made on the real examples, set of practical exercises etc.
