Book Reviews

In the publishing industry there are many charts and awards for the best selling books, but with sales in the tens and hundreds—not thousands—it would be impossible to have a sales chart for technology handbooks. So, here is a list of "Bob Willis' Top Ten" reference books that has been updated to take into account recent changes in technology.

This list does not indicate the number of sales of any one title, the age or up-to-date nature of the text, only my opinion on the "must have" engineering titles for your office bookshelf. Remember: Generally no new problems in manufacture exist; most have been seen before by someone.
