While other materials science books focus heavily on metals, Newell's Material Science and Engineering offers a unique approach that emphasizes modern materials such as polymers, ceramics, and composites. The book explores the key concepts and fundamentals that are needed to make informed decisions in the field. The importance of economics in decision-making and consideration of the entire life cycle of products are themes that are also integrated throughout the chapters. Engineers will be able to use this as a reference for the materials selection issues that they'll deal with throughout their careers.
