It is really a good book for this prize. Though there are plenty of books on theory of elasticity subject, there is no book concisely explains the subject like this one. It is meant for a first time learner also helps little bit to understand the complex notations in tensor, dyadic approach for elasticity problems. Overall it is a good buy for a beginner who ants to learn the elasticity subject from the scratch. I would strongly suggest this book for both senior and graduate students who are interested in theory of elasticity.
