This scalar-based introductory statics text, ideally suited for engineering technology programs, provides first-rate treatment of rigid bodies without vector mechanics. This edition provides an extensive selection of new problems and end-of-chapter summaries. The text brings the careful presentation of content, unmatched levels of accuracy, and attention to detail that have made Beer and Johnston texts the standard for excellence in engineering mechanics education.

This book was almost a waste. I had to use Chegg to get solutions to the problems to make sense of this unclear book. This book is not a great book because alone, it is too confusing and takes too much time to understand. This book only started to make sense when I watched countless videos on Youtube, used Chegg.com for solutions and found other literature to teach myself statics. Statics in general is not an extremely difficult subject. (It's a 100 level class) I felt this book actually made the class harder by making me second guess what I already knew. Torque (Moment) is force x distance. Somehow this book made me feel like that was incorrect. They don't build good foundations of concepts and make topics harder than they need to be. I Do NOT recommend this book at all. Is there a better book?; I'm not sure. However, I would not recommend this if you are trying to learn statics from a book.
A very good book on static mechanics. The problems seem hard at first but remembering sigma Fx = 0, sigma Fy = 0, sigma Fz=0, you'll be fine. This book is easier if you know basic college physics topics aka moments, forces, vectors, etc.

This is recommended for mechanical and civil engineers. This book is being utilized at Northeastern University.
Finished structural schooling with this book. It is a great intro book for people that want to learn what structural engineers have to calculate on a working basis. It is a book I will have for a very long time in my library.
This book and all books by Beer and very well written and have a lot of really good examples and problems.
Good condition.
This book is confusing on how to apply problems, is not worded that great, and the topics are often only half a page long, not nearly good enough to understand the material. I taken this class last year (Spring of 2015) and failed it. I am taking it again this coming semester (Spring of 2016) and I hope I do better this time around.
When I purchased Mechanics for Engineers, Statics by by Ferdinand Pierre Beer" Being a used book and for the low price I bought it for I was expecting to find it in a lot worse condition than it was. It was a great deal. The cover of the book was a bit dirty but that was it. The book was just what I needed for my class and it was a lot cheaper than buying it at the book store on campus. The book at the book store was priced at $180 and I got it here on amazon for $90. Saving money and passing classes, That's the way to go!
