Main Question or Discussion Point

Can someone recommend a book to use in lieu of "Engineering Materials and Their Applications" Flinn 4e?
Table of contents:
http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-0471125083,descCd-tableOfContents.html" [Broken]

It's hard to tell based on just the table of contents.

Another Materials Science and Engineering book is Callister which is discussed in this thread - https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=78908

The main problem with introductory books is that they try to cover so many materials and often give superficial treatment to important microstructural (atomistic) aspects.

Mechanics of Materials is another area that could use a really comprehensive text.
