Bob Willis’ Top Process Engineers Book List for Christmas

When you want a break from electric shavers and ugly ties, here are some more options for the engineer on your holiday list!

 These titles are not all new but some of the best reference books in the industry. If a company does not have 60% of the titles in their library, their engineers are missing out.

 In the publishing industry there are many charts and awards for the bestselling books, but with sales in the tens and hundreds-not thousands or billions it would be impossible to have a sales chart for this type of technology handbook.

 This list does not indicate the number of sales of any one title, the age or up-to-date nature of the text, only my opinion on the “must have” engineering titles for your office bookshelf. If you have an assembly or manufacturing hand book not included and you think it unique let us know?
