Using a direct and straightforward style of writing that has won praise from students and instructors alike, it focuses on the needs of industrial mechanics, technicians and engineers working with industrial mechanical and power transmission products, and integrates safety and troubleshooting components within each chapter to encourage diagnostic skill-building.
