As the all-around handy concise reference to stress analysis, Roark's remains King. The differences in the table of contents are listed below. The price is also quite reasonable for a 1072 pg book. Roark's strength remains in the extensive tables of many common and uncommon loading conditions and restraints. The chapters provide brief overviews of the theoretical concepts behind the tables but cannot be regarded as a teaching medium for these deep topics. For example, the chapters on fatigue & joints do not provide the education necessary to become a proficient stress analyst in these areas. Any serious stress analyst also has proficiency in an FEA package as well. Roark's formulas serve to provide terrific verification calculations to confirm FEA results are in the ballpark. Overall, there is no reason to be without this iconic textbook.
