From the reviews:

“This work by mechanical engineers Bautista Paz … and colleagues provides a very short historical overview of machines. … It covers much mechanical engineering history, and if one wants to get an idea of the breadth and depth of the field, then this volume will do the job. … Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates.” (A. M. Strauss, Choice, Vol. 48 (3), November, 2010)

“This history survey with an engineering approach is written by a group of four authors. … The book is divided into eight chapters which are presented in chronological order. … The book is instructive, well readable and a good introduction into the historical development of machines and mechanisms … .” (Rüdiger Thiele, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1206, 2011)
