Description
The story of this book: We wrote a book because we didn\'t like the available texts. We talked to about 10 textbook authors before we started writing. They all advised against it: more work than you would think, slight if negative academic rewards, and little chance of financial gain. Now we know. But it hasn\'t been all bad. We started in 1992 and have re-organized the book 3 or 4 times since. We have enjoyed 8 international trips to work together in Ithaca, the Baltic Sea, and Bangalore. We were just writing a dynamics text, but then we added statics because many of the student dynamics difficulties had their roots there.The book was contracted by Saunders Publishing but then sold, with the Saunders College Division, to Oxford University Press where our friendly editor is Danielle Christianson. Various pre-release versions of this book have been used at Cornell about 10 times and also at a few other schools. We have had about 20 external reviews. Some people have read the book nearly straight through and found it educational, despite the defects which have annoyed some others. If we are lucky we will continue to improve the book as more people find it useful.
