"Mechanics of Materials" by Beer, Johnson, DeWolf and Mazurek has been one of the leading texts for engineering strength of materials for nearly 3 decades.

It is pretty comprehensive for an introductory text, and is a good choice to master the basics of strength of materials, with a good mix of theory with example problems, and with answers in the back for many of the problems.

As with Beer & Johnson's Statics and Dynamics texts, many of the homework problems are tricky, requiring leaps of j
