    The classic texts by Timoshenko and by Den Hartog are very difficult to beat. (With Timoshenko, get the 3rd ed, or failing that the 2nd ed; nothing later as they are simply bastardized versions by others, trading on Timoshenko's name.)
    WTThompson is also a good author, but again, get an earlier edition done by Thompson himself.
