According to the preface, the major objective of the book is to provide a comprehensive practical reference manual. He saw the need when flipping through is many books during the sitting for the Professional Engineering Exam. Nobody had yet published a single "textbook" style reference. This was his attempt.
I am quite torn reviewing this book. Mian does so many things right. He covers nearly every subject. There are 250 solved example problems for hands-on application. Tons of charts. The book is entirely self-contained. With so many great points, why not 5 stars?
First, the printing style is terrible. Grainy and sprawled. This is a shame, because Mian clearly took pains do this book right, yet the reader is constantly flipping through pages due to the large margins and wide spacing. With better editing and printing, this book would be a gem. I have both volumes, know them well, and yet dread opening due to the print style.
Second, it's dated. Lots of number tables are included from the pre-computer era. And while it seems to have been written (at least partly) for he PE exam, I never once opened this book while taking the exam (of course the exam has changed a lot since this book was published). Also, the exam seems to be based upon SPE references. So while Mian has lots of details in his book that I have found useful over the years, this approach is rarely used elsewhere. Sort of sad, but that's just the way it is.
I own this book (both volumes) and wouldn't give it away. If it went back into print after being updated, I would certainly buy it again. But were I new engineer, I wouldn't take the plunge.
