After 5 years of on-and-off work, I finally have a physical copy of my textbook, Materials and Manufacturing: An Introduction to How They Work and Why It Matters. The writing is conversational in tone to make it easier to read, and I produced more than 90% of the 530 figures to directly complement the text. It is particularly useful for programs incorporating laboratory activities, and the content balances depth and basic principles so that someone without a background can understand the general concepts and appreciate the more complex topics. It was a huge undertaking, and I hope that the effort pays off by making these topics easier to understand and more exciting overall.
