"Materials and Design: The Art and Science of Material Selection in Product Design...editor's choice." - Design Issues '..the book has very interesting and thorough information, and would be a very useful tool for an industrial designer.' Materials World, May 2004 "Both interesting and intriguing, this book should prove a valuable resource for those starting out in design or engineering...it is also fun to browse through." Science Magazine, June 2003 'Well presented, easy to read with concise descriptions. Very suitable for students on courses which involve art design and the use of modern materials' - Derrick Parker, Univ. Portsmouth, Dept. Mech. & Manufacturing Eng. 'An attractive and informative book.' David Birkett, Chemistry in Britain, London, February 2003 'The book's quality of reproduction is excellent and it is very well illustrated with a large number of diagrams, sketches and photographs, most of them in colour.' K.L. Edwards, University of Darby, 2003 "When I looked at this book for the first time, I could not stop myself from being amazed with its concept, form, design, and contents. ... It is a unique book that elucidates evolution of products and the materials from a historical to the modern perspective. ... I would strongly recommend this volume for design students and engineers, materials engineers, and mechanical engineers. - Corrosion June 2004 "...well-written and easy-to-read...unique and a worthwhile reference for designers, engineers, and suppliers." - Adhesives & Sealants Newsletter, 2006
The history of man is recorded, recovered and remembered through the designs he created and the materials he used. Materials are the stuff of design, and today is not the age of just one material, but of an immense range. Best selling author M. F. Ashby guides the reader through the process of selecting materials on the basis of their design suitability. He and co-author Kara Johnson begin with the assumption that products in a given market sector have little to distinguish between them in either performance or cost. When many technically near-equivalent products compete, market share is won or lost by the industrial design of a product: its visual and tactile attributes, the associations it carries, the image it creates in the consumer's mind and the quality of its interface with the use and the environment. Ashby and Johnson address the problem of selecting materials for industrial design from a unique viewpoint.They acknowledge that materials have two overlapping roles, in technical design and in industrial design. The technical designer has ready access to materials information. Industrial designers often do not have equivalent support."Materials Selection in Industrial Design" presents groundbreaking new information that, on one hand introduces engineering students to the principles of Industrial Design and to the idea that the selection of materials can directly affect the aesthetic qualities of the object. On the other hand they introduce industrial design students and practising industrial designers to engineering parameters through an accessible and holistic approach. This title offers an easy to use systematic approach to the selection and uses of materials. Many excellent attribute "maps" are included which enable complex comparative information to be readily grasped. Full colour photographs and illustrations throughout aid the understanding of concepts. Alle Produktbeschreibungen

If you are truly interested in Materials and Design, this is your book. I suggest also to take a look of those books written by Chris Lefteri, they are easier to read for a student, and have examples of the materials with great pictures. It's up to you "what" and "how" you want to learn.
Don't expect to this to be the end of your material exploration. It will act like a blueprint or the outline of an essay - lending itself nicely to quick reference and starting points for exploration.
