"Second Edition provides new material on coupling ratings, general purpose couplings versus special purpose couplings, retrofitting of lubricated couplings to nonlubricated couplings, torsional damping couplings, torquemeter couplings, and more."
"Praise for the First Edition. . . . . .well presented and makes available much useful information for the coupling selector. It should be purchased as a reference book by libraries, by machinery-related industries, and by engineers engaged in the design of machinery where rotating shafts must be connected. "
---Applied Mechanics Review
"An excellent source which permits users and selectors of coupling, as well as rotating equipment designers and engineers, to understand and choose coupling for optimum applications. "
---The International Journal of Structural and Mechanical and Materials Science
