3.0 out of 5 stars just an fyi Aug. 4 2011
By matt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Please be aware that this version (An Introduction to...) only includes the first 6 chapters of the full book by the same name. Unless you are a complete newb to drafting/engineering drawings, then the first 5 chapters are not so useful. Ch 6 begins solid modeling and is where the book really starts.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother Aug. 10 2012
By Kendal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author is very good and has good graphics and illustrations, but the introduction book is basically worthless. Don't waist your time with just the introduction. Just get the whole book, because it also has the same exact chapters as this one. I had to buy both books, because this one didn't have anything important, so i felt really jipped. I think it is the publishers fault for this trying to cheat people out of more money, but the author did a really good job, if you get the real book.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good overall introduction to design workflow process Oct. 3 2012
By C. Okonkwo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a good introduction to the design workflow process. The author did well to simplify what goes into the general ambiguous design process. Will serve as basic guide to both engineers and project personnel.
