A very readable, no bullshit introduction to continuum mechanics. Much more useful than the verbose and extremely formal Goldstein, Poole, and Safko that is the mainstay of graduate class mech classes.

You know that feeling when your ears pop after the plane has landed? How everything just feels so much better? That's about how I felt when we switched to this text from GPS midway through the semester. ( )
