    From the publisher:
    "Electric Machinery Fundamentals continues to be a best-selling machinery text due to its accessible, student-friendly coverage of the important topics in the field.
    In the fifth edition, the use of MATLAB® continues to be incorporated in examples and problems, where applicable. The targeted and thought-provoking problems you've come to appreciate have been retained in this edition."

    This book is informative. Only downfall is the lack of answers to questions following each chapter. I have yet to find a book that is similar in nature with answers.
