Best Book For Engineering Statics August 18, 2011
This textbook has some great explanations on engineering statics in the field of mechanics. This is great for mechanical, industrial, and civil engineers. It has a good variety of problems, examples and solutions. Any person having no knowledge of vectors, if read this textbook from the first page, I assure he/she can become a master in statics.
