This book provides an excellent introduction to mechanics using lots of diagrams, basic vocabulary and a minimum of math. This book was developed by the US Navy to teach ordinary people how to maintain shipboard machinery. It is very thorough because lives depended on the results, but very readable because students were expected to have no more than a high school education. The book provides an intuitive introduction to basic physics including force, work, and power. The discussion of these basics is interleaved with detailed examples of practical machines including levers, gears, screws, hydraulics, bearings, differentials and internal combustion engines.
