This is a Dover reprint of a text first published in 1980. At the time, a Telegraphic Review described it as follows: "The basic principles of continuum mechanics are presented at a level appropriate for undergraduate study. Introductory chapters cover material on matrix algebra, vectors and tensors used in the remainder of the book."

A longer review appeared in SIAM Review in July 1983 and is accessible through JSTOR. The reviewer describes the book as a "nicely written brief introduction" and deems it suitable for use with advanced undergraduates.
