    Not strictly an engineering text book, but I think that "A brief history of time" by Stephen Hawkins is a good book related to engineering. Just a thought...

    A physics book, I'd say. A must read for every engineer though. [​IMG]

    The Way Things Works is probably one of the most popular engineering books ever written. The Machinist Handbook would most likely come up second for the more mechanical fields.

    I have to say that textbooks are hard to judge since they vary from school to school and version to version, and I wouldn't say they are 'popular'. More like required.

    according to me.......
    the engineering books can be classified in to two types:
    1.books for clearing the subjects
    2.books for understanding the concepts deeply
    for clearing the subjects i would suggest the books from technical publications-pune.....
    for the purpose of understanding the concepts deeply the books from the publications of tata mcgraw hill and prientice hall edition- new delhi.....

    I think for clearing the subject any text book is good.
