Great standard for rotational machinery and vibrational analysis. It very thick and technical, covering nearly every topic involving vibration. Definitely belongs on the shelf. As a learning tool, I preferred "Structural Dynamics" by Craig.
I have other textbooks that do a better job, but they were published over 30 years ago. employer wanted to have a more current reference
I've profit their examples in my job. I think that the authors must use the IS. In non anglo countries is common used IS. I think that if there were more theory it were a better handbook.
