    1. How do I explain this book? It's just a compendium of the different ways to make things. Lathing (in the cut from block section), blown film (continuous manufacturing) , thermoforming, and on. It organizes techniques by high level category, introduced many methods I had never used, or seen in industry, and provides pros and cons for each. Readable for a layperson, and the kind of book I love to memorize, as it opens up a whole new world of wonder. We have grown too far from knowing how things wo [...]

    2. I was in dire need of a holistic book that covers all the materials right from its production process to its applications so that you could use appropriate materials for the problem statement. Thumbs up, Lefteri.

    3. Consider this a reference book. It's not readable from front to back as it has no narrative. Not really what I was expecting. It breaks down families of manufacturing processes, and within those families has a 2-3 page overview of the process, listing pros, cons, uses, compatible materials, constraints, types of products made with it, speed, complexity, scalability, tolerances, unit volume, and interestingly waste/sustainability. The drawings and diagrams are good; they have a nice hand-drawn fe [...]

    4. This book was a nice, designerly overview of production techniques. Unfortunately, the second edition came out just after I bought it, so I couldn't enjoy its comparisons by environmental criteria. I found that it gives great suggestions about the potential applications of each approach, but the pros and cons didn't seem to be comparable in a systematic way. This book is great for the design researcher looking to think about new techniques or find an approach that they might follow up on, but no [...]

    5. Thought it was a good overview of the various manufacturing processes, particularly from a design perspective. The only thing is that since it was released in 2007, and being that it's 8 years old, there are a number of newer techniques, such as 3D printing that were not in the book. Would be nice to see an updated version.

    6. Good reference for many types of industrial fabrication. ((What the heck is pulltrusion, anyway?") Shows examples of how its done, applicable materials, pros and cons, as well as reference companies and websites.
