"I like your book for a survey of manufacturing processes. Most other books go into such detail that it could take two, three, or four courses to fully cover the material. It is difficult to use a book of that depth as an introduction to manufacturing; your book will do the job." - Thomas J. Beck, Texas A&M University
"The text's strengths are excellent illustrations, breadth of topics, and easy-to-understand treatment." - Ramamurthy Prabhakaran, Old Dominion University
