    I want a good book for "Engineering Mechanics" the one which explains everything to damn detailed levels...
    Problems is not an issue..I want the subject matter(theory) to be great great details......
    Thats all..hope this was specific....if not plz take the effort to tell me..what more specifications I should post(I think I had the only specification I posted in this post)..:smile

    But there is no such book, the closest you wil get are the Handbooks, and they have to be very straightforward due to book size limits. The biggest I own is about 3000 pages, full of quick reference tables.

    You may try the "Machinery's Handbook":

    http://books.google.com.br/books?id...6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=machinery handbook&f=false

    Or, perhaps, the "Mechanical Engineer's Handbook" will suit you best, but don't expect in depth theory:

    Now you are being specific.
    I'm sure you will get replies from the physicists in this forum, if you direct your thread to them.

    Hard to say without knowing anything about you & what you know already, but here's a list in roughly ascending order:

    An introduction to mechanics, Kleppner, Daniel
    The Feynman Lectures on Physics, esp volume 1, Feynman, Richard P.
    Principles of dynamics, Donald T. Greenwood
    Classical mechanics, Goldstein, Herbert

    These are just a few 'classics' there are many other good books. search amazon "classical mechanics" and/or "dynamics" for more with reviews
    Good Luck
