Review of the first edition: 'Indeed it deserves the same wide audience as J. E. Gordon's brilliant popular classic: The Science of Strong Materials and Structures. It deals largely with different aspects of design but it resembles them in its clarity, wisdom, humour, and in its astonishing range of examples.' The Times Higher Education Supplement
"...the book succeeds admirably...gives a sufficiently broad treatment of design principles to be recommended for use far beyond the shores of Great Britain. Coverage is both fresh and nontrivial." R. J. Foster, Applied Mechanics Review
"A successful effort, it is recommended for collections serving undergraduates in engineering or science." G. E. Johnson, Choice
"...the book is really fun to read if you have enough background...Professor French is sharing the wisdom accumulated during a long and productive professional life, and doing this in an interestinf and provocative manner." Appllied Mechanics Review
