Editorial Reviews
The eighth edition of Shigley's Mechanical Engineering Design maintains the basic approaches that have made this book the standard in machine design for over 40 years. At the same time it combines the straightforward focus on fundamentals instructors have come to expect with a modern emphasis on design and new applications. Overall coverage of basic concepts are clear and concise so that readers can easily navigate key topics. This edition includes a new case study to help illuminate the complexities of shafts and axles and a new finite elements chapter. Problem sets have been improved, with new problems added to help students progressively work through them. The book website includes ARIS, which is a homework management system that will have 90 algorithmic problems.

Engineering Review by Halley
My first experience with Shigley's Mechanical Engineering was in college when the book was required for one of my classes. This was back around the 1972 time frame. I kept that book and used it, along with several other colleagues, to the point where the book was falling to pieces. At this point I decided to brake down and buy the latest version which has much more information. If you do any kind of stress analysis work, Shigley's is a must have book.


This book is not good
This book is very ambiguous and has many wrong answers in the back of the book. For a student that struggles with this topic, it is very misleading and frustrating when the answers provided are wrong.


Shigley's !
Haven't gotten too far in the book, but so far, it's a very organized, well written book.


Good Condition
This book is amazing it has everything engineers need to know for Mechanical Systems. It is one of the few engineering books that I will keep forever


Informative, but not a stand-alone text
I purchased this book for my ENGM400: Mechanical Engineering Design class. I gained a lot from that class, but that was LARGELY due to a very experienced professor with excellent presentation abilities. This textbook is filled with useful information, but without a professional to explain how to use many of the concepts presented, it is nearly useless. Until you have been taught the purpose of various tables and charts, and guided through the methods of analyzing many of the problems contained inside, this book will only confuse you.

The book does provide many excellent examples, but unfortunately some of these are severely lacking in explanation, leaving you to puzzle over WHY the authors chose to solve problems the way they did; other problem types are completely missing a corresponding example and are just as confusing.

Obviously, if this textbook is a requirement for your class, reading this review won't persuade you not to buy it. To be honest, I would actually recommend buying it rather than borrowing or leasing, because once you have been instructed in its use it has a ton of helpful information and I have been using it for reference at my place of employment. However, don't expect to pick it up as something to read for knowledge without a course to accompany it.
