I'm enjoying this book. It's the text for Material and Process in the Cerritos College Manufacturing program, making some very over my head subject matter easy to understand. The head of the department says it's the one book from the plastics program (To our knowledge the ONLY full college program in plastics) that alumni say they continually refer to.
