Reviews

From the book reviews:

Selected by Choice magazine as an "Outstanding Academic Title" for 2014

“This book is geared to both upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in mechanical engineering or engineering mechanics. … this work is one of the most well-organized and best presentations of this type of material that this reviewer has seen. … a useful acquisition for libraries serving students in vehicle dynamics programs and libraries serving professionals in the field; it will be particularly valuable for libraries that do not own the original edition. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above.” (G. E. Johnson, Choice, Vol. 51 (11), July, 2014)
