Format: Hardcover
Electro-mechanical suggests the book would have info on motors, solenoids, and other electromechanical items, but it has very little. It's mostly mechanical & general engineering stuff, with a very basic chapter on electrical components. Throughout the book, it goes into excessive detail on subjects where the author had material on hand, and glosses over other important areas. If you were going to buy this and Walsh's other book, Machining and Metalworking, buy both Machinery's Handbook and Christiansen's Electronics Engineers' Handbook instead as these cover all the samesubject matter and more.

Format: Hardcover
This is a very technical handbook for a working mechanical, or electro-mechanical engineer. It includes charts of materials, their densities, their dielectric constants, cross sections of bearings, mechanisms for translating rotary motion into linear motion, page after page of descriptions of fasteners, torque ratings for different screws, pictures of industrial lathes, analysis of mechanical damage suffered by high current machinery due to electrical fields, etc.
Fascinating, if you're the kind of person who subscribes to Home Shop Machinist, but not light reading by any means.

Excellent Handbook. Logically laid out. Has lots of data with out a lot index referencing. The handbook has material information as well as conversions and basic mathematical principles. This book takes you from the basics to detailed electro mechanical systems. a must for any Mechanical Engineer

Good stuff Jan. 31 2014
By Gaggleframpf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Lots of facts and formulas, I don't think electromechanical is the best word for the title. Most Electromechanical industries today have a focus on the application and less on math. This has so much math it could make your head spin. I don't feel like the electromechanical part is couched well in today's industry. This book is over ten years old. Not recommended for recent data.

On the positive side, there is a lot of good information. I just don't think it is categorized very well.

There are no page numbers, just section numbers. Blech.
A REALLY COMPLETE HANDBOOK! March 3 2013

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
There are many "Handbook" in the web claiming they are but they aren't. This IS a hanbook and it has many concepts from: mechanics, optics, electronics, chemistry, etc.
It is an excellent reference book!
