A thoroughly contemporary approach to teaching essential engineering graphics skills has made Fundamentals of Solid Modeling and Graphics Communication the leading textbook in introductory engineering graphics courses. The seventh edition continues to integrate design concepts and the use of 3D CAD modeling into its outstanding coverage of the basic visualization and sketching techniques that enable students to create and communicate graphic ideas effectively.
The primary goal of this text is to help the engineering and technology student learn the techniques and standard practices of technical graphics, so that design ideas can be adequately communicated and produced. 
As in past editions, the authors have included many examples of how graphics communication pertains to "real-world" engineering design, including current industry practices and breakthroughs.

A Wall Street Journal Best Book of the Year

The Pixar Touch is a lively chronicle of Pixar Animation Studios' history and evolution, and the “fraternity of geeks” who shaped it. With the help of animating genius John Lasseter and visionary businessman Steve Jobs, Pixar has become the gold standard of animated filmmaking, beginning with a short special effects shot made at Lucasfilm in 1982 all the way up through the landmark films Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Wall-E, and others. David A. Price goes behind the scenes of the corporate feuds between Lasseter and his former champion, Jeffrey Katzenberg, as well as between Jobs and Michael Eisner. And finally he explores Pixar's complex relationship with the Walt Disney Company as it transformed itself into the $7.4 billion jewel in the Disney crown.

This book to offers a hands-on guide to designing, analyzing and debugging a communication infrastructure based on the Controller Area Network (CAN) bus. Although the CAN bus standard is well established and currently used in most automotive systems, as well as avionics, medical systems and other devices, its features are not fully understood by most developers, who tend to misuse the network. This results in lost opportunities for better efficiency and performance.

These authors offer a comprehensive range of architectural solutions and domains of analysis. It also provides formal models and analytical results, with thorough discussion of their applicability, so that it serves as an invaluable reference for researchers and students, as well as practicing engineers.
