Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From a review of the first edition:

"Gooch (Georgia Inst. of Technology) here provides a very dense, broad-ranging, and sometimes surprisingly eclectic group of definitions, structural drawings, appendixes, and references. … The ancillary tables and appendixes … add context and provide ready reference. … Lower-level undergraduates through professionals/practitioners." (S. M. Pilgrim, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (3), November, 2007)
