Best Books For Theory Of Machines

I have found some best books for Theory of Machines.

One is Theory of Machines by Joseph Edward Shigley.

Another one which focuses deeply on this subject is

Theory of Machines by S.S Rattan.

Can you suggest some more books please?

@ISHAN TOPRE • 16 Aug, 2012 I don't know the name but the authors are Beer and Johnson I saw people using it for TOM.
@ISHAN TOPRE • 19 Aug, 2012 The Beer and johnson book covers many subjects in brief.

Some more for TOM is Kinematics and dynamics of Machinery by R.L. Norton.
@PuneetVerma • 19 Aug, 2012 Actually TOM is the subject, for which I didn't find a proper book covering all the topics.

Theory of Machines - by R.S Khurmi and J.K Gupta

Theory of Machines - by Thomas Bevan

These two are the best of all. I prefer the second one i.e  Thomas Bevan's Theory of Machines because it contains a simple and more understandable explanation of topics.
