5-0 out of 5 stars Indespensible boat manual
I'm not talking about yachting type books. I have owned and operated commercial fishing boats in Alaska, for over 30 years.And this book demystifies bonding, grounding, AC boat wiring, lightning protection, a whole chapter just on batteries, and that's just the electrical part of the book. If your unsure about some aspect of your boat's electrical system or machinery, and are walking the docks trying to find out something about them, GET THIS BOOK. Some of that BS one hears on the dock can sink you.

5-0 out of 5 stars a very usefull manual
covers many important areas where problems usually arise. easily understood explanations and instructions to find and resolve problems. great resource to keep on the boat.

5-0 out of 5 stars excellent book
i am a marine student in nz, i was doing a assigment of boat battery. i went to libarary for this book and i read through the first chapter of the book which gives me from basic to depth ideas about battery. it's worth to own a book like this if you are a real boatie. perticularly for trouble shooting. cheers, enjoy ...

3-0 out of 5 stars OBD II Diagnostic Fault Codes
This book, valuable as it may be, should have been included with it's sister book The OBDII Bible by the same author.5-0 out of 5 stars 4000 fault codes in one place!
Yes, it has over 4000 fault codes, unbelievable.This book is great for me because I work on cars (family and friends) on the weekend, and spare time.My fault code reader shows me the fault code and no text.I could go online and check what the faults mean, but the internet doesn't go where I am, plus not one site has a complete list.This book has helped me get the code definitions to repair what is wrong with the car.OBD II Diagnostics Secrets Reveled and this book has helped me go to the next level in fixing cars.I recommend this book to anyone who needs a Complete reference of OBD II fault codes.Great Book! ...

4-0 out of 5 stars McPhee is back!
John McPhee is arguably the greatest practitioner of literary non-fiction in America since Joseph Mitchell.Some of his works are more accessible than others, but his knack for making complex and obscure subjects interesting and approachable is perhaps the greatest of his gifts (although his flawless control of language is right up there).
4-0 out of 5 stars Transported
For anyone with any interest at all in how commercial stuff is moved from place to place in our large country.
5-0 out of 5 stars Travel tales
John McPhee is the ultimate observer.He has an uncanny ability to reveal interesting details in the most mundanesurroundings.Much of what he discloses are things we often overlook.Better yet, he imparts what he sees with impressive clarity and delightful wit.He draws on extensive experience, from purposely stalling aircraft [Table of Contents] to great ships roaming the seas [Looking For A Ship].The underlying theme of this volume is a bit more ground-based, as he joins truckers, bargemen, train engineers and his son-in-law.With these companions, he exposes a bit more of our world to us.McPhee may not be able to engage in "talking shop" with the men he deals with in this book, but he's a master at "listening shop".What he hears from them is conveyed to us in a way that puts us right next to him, attending closely.

4-0 out of 5 stars First-class book of airportindustry
A very good book,most 'freindly' and understandabale, offers wide spectrum ofairport's infrastructure as well as its economic aspects. Recommanded forb thse intersted in aaition in general and airport planning in particular.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Book Of Choice For Students and Dreamers
Like many young men, and I daresay women, I was drawn to airport management after exposure to Burt Lamcaster's sterling portrayal of a harried airport manager in the Ross Hunter classic AIRPORT.Lancaster showed us that a man could handle a million problems all at once, if he had the right combination of grit and gray cells.It wasn't only the glamor, it was the idea of helping people get through their day--even when the people in question were six or seven miles up in the air--that made me consider airport management as a major at school.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference for any student of airport management
Airport Planning & Management is an excellent reference for any student of airport management or aviation.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Shop Manuals...
Even if you just do basic repairs or routine service to your car, the Bentley manuals are the only real game in town. They are copied directly from BMW original manuals and are very detailed. When I first got my 528, one of the cup holders failed in the back seat. The manual showed me an easy way to remove them. I also chose to replace the center arm rest and trying to figure that out without the manual would have been impossible. With the manual it was a 10 minutes affair. These two items paid for the cost of the manuals and the manuals add to the value of my car when and if I sell it.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good, but lacks detail
Needed to replace water pump, thermostat, belts and hoses on E39 530, details are lacking. Good source for general information, but most of that is available on the Net.

4-0 out of 5 stars BMW 5 Series (E39) Service Manual: 1997-2002 (BMW 5 Series (E39) (2 Volume Set) (BMW 5 Series (E39))
It's a pity that the technical manual doesn't cover the BMW 525TDS or TD (Diesel versions).These Diesel-engine equipped E39-versions differ of course in the engine mechanics (i.e. a M51TU motor engine), but has also differences in the electrical wiring, hence making the details of the Electrical Diagrams almost useless (when it comes to the details of the connections).

3-0 out of 5 stars Acceptable but Annoying
This text is a fairly standard treatment of classical (macroscopic) thermodynamics. It is targeted specifically at students of mechanical engineering. Anyone going into some other engineering discipline that depends on thermo (e.g., chem eng) -- or into one of the hard sciences (physics, biophys, biochem, chemistry, etc.) -- will get very little value from this book. Its main focus seems to be on the use of the right formula to solve specific kinds of problems. ("Plug and chug.") 3-0 out of 5 stars so far
So far this book is pretty good, but it needs more examples and a short study guide with conversion problems would be helpful. Some of the homework problems really take some time and creative unit changes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cengel's 5th edition 2006 surpasses Moran/Shapiro. Definitely, no doubt!
Professor Cengel never ceases to update his series of premium McGraw-Hill Higher Education mechanical engineering textbooks. His flagship, the thermodynamics text - not yet a classic but already a standard and a universum's bestseller for the past 15 years - has become even more modernized and tightly integrated with nowadays media: electronic media (packaged with a free DVD-ROM instead of the CD-ROM), software, and online companion resources. Total professionalism throughout the entire package, a true aeuvre: hats off with regard to the accomplishment on both author's, editor's and publisher's part!

Give a good chronological review from the early days of aviation thru deregulation. More of a history of aviation then a review of legislation.

The manual was recommended by other BMW E-30 owners and so far it has been pretty helpful.Without it I would not have been able to troubleshoot and find out the problem with the windows of my car.The pictures are black and white and could use many more to show the steps to follow.The electrical diagrams are good.I recommend you buy it if you are going to start working on your car but don't expect lots of pictures.

5-0 out of 5 stars I got everthing I needed here
This has been money well spent,I am happy I got it and everyone who cant leave their car alone should own it. Not for the faint hearted or old fashioned fuel injection systems.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good read, with a few shortcomings.
Overall this was a worthwhile book to read, especialy for someone like myself trying to learn a little more about engine tuning in general.I thought the author jumped around a bit on different topics, it could have flowed from one topic to another in a more logical order.There was also a bit of repetition, as though topics were pulled from previously written articles.I found the cases studies to be worthless - one or two would have sufficed.The font could also be a bit larger.Those nit pickings aside, I learned a great deal from this book, which was what I was hoping for.

5-0 out of 5 stars Holy Cow Why Didn't I Find This Book Sooner?
I have a few books from the "Motorbooks Workshop" series and I am happy with all of them -in fact I'm kicking around the idea of building a library of them for myself, as they are all instant reference books full of valuable information. I could waste a weekend away just thumbing through them.

5-0 out of 5 stars The 'Gold Standard' history of PMCC...
Simply the best, most comprehensive history of the Packard Motorcar Company, it's products, and it's creators.Lavishly illustrated, including many archival photos, full specs on all the models, and intricate details of the products and company...all the info anyone really needs on these fabulous cars, and much more than the total of all the 'Other' Packard books combined. A substantially sized book which befits the aura of the Company as well.My only concern in an otherwise well researched effort is the largely inaccurate reporting of the intentions behind the Studebaker merger debacle...something the excellent James Ward book covers quite well (and accurately). Still, a 'Must Have', and a relative bargain, especially since it's first printing sold for $75. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Invalid Statistics Zone: How and why stats lie
Unfortunately the central thesis of this book is not proved. Two previous reviewers, "Canuck" and the anonymous reader who posted the review on November 25, 2003, pretty much nailed the problem with this book: a failure to normalize the raw accident totals. Do low-time pilots have a higher fatal accident rate per hour flown than high-time pilots? It's impossible to say with the data provided. For example, given the following accident statistics covering a 17 year period:

There is some interesting information in here, but the book could have been half as long.Much of the book repeats basics that we all know from our student pilot training (or at least should know).The crash reports and summaries are a good reminder of some basic pilot errors that cause accidents, but I was hoping for more practical advice on risk management. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Airplane Design Reference
One of the best airplane design books out there.I rank it with Torenbeek and Roskam.I refer to it during my design studies as well as my students.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
I'm a second-year aerospace engineering student and after searching for books that would tell me exactly why I'm learning what I am, this one was recommended to me. The author explains how and why designers do what they do, and even has a handwritten design example in the back. I bought the RDS software with this book, and am still figuring it out. If you do get the RDS, don't expect a Windows interface. Think DOS. At least it's not a system hog.

5-0 out of 5 stars Necessary Starting Point to Understanding Aircraft Design
This is an excellent, and for the time being the authoratative, book about aircraft design. For anyone who wants to become an aerospace engineer reading a book like this should put any type of work they'll do in the proper context.

"Going Faster" is surely one of the best books ever written about the fundamentals of driving.While focusing on handling a car at speed on a track, each of these lessons applies to general handling in all situations.Situational awareness, looking ahead, picking the best line through a corner, understanding the car's grip and why smooth inputs matter so much.Everything is here.

Existen muchos libros que tratan el tema pero me dej� llevar por el buen nombre que tiene la Skip Barber Racing School y creo que hice muy bien. El libro cubre, creo yo, todo lo que en teor�a se deber�a saber a cerca de como correr en un auto de carreras, despu�s del libro s�lo queda poner en pr�ctica todas las cosas que se aprendieron, algo que obviamente es muy complicado, pero por lo menos al haber leido el libro ya te sientes con confianza de que no est�s actuando como un ser irracional al frente del volante de un auto de carreras. Yo aconsejo que lo compren y adem�s si tienen la opci�n de hacer el curso (yo no la tengo) lo hagan, creo que es uno de los m�s completos que hay en el mundo, lo digo porque he investigado el asunto por largo tiempo.

5-0 out of 5 stars an exceptional book.a must read for any serious driver.
This book is amongst the best I have ever read in terms of driving.It covers a tremendous amount of detail.This is a most read, is it not only from one of the top racing schools in the country, is allot cheaper.The information in this book is like having ten other books put together.Although this book covers almost everything it is not the only one to read. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Generally Good, Though Occasionally Off Track
"Commercial Aviation Safety" is a great introductory text for students wanting exposure to most safety considerations in aviation. The book is a well-organized survey, although I only award it four stars because the authors frequently get off-topic into areas only tangentially related to aviation safety.
