Not worth it.
If you read my reviews, you'll see that I'm fair and honest when it comes to judging books.
Unfortunately, this book was a disappointment.
The problems are elementary and the explanations are vague.
Find yourself another textbook in order to avoid the terrible headache which comes from this poorly written textbook.

Excellent introductory book on tensors
I've not come across another book that introduces tensors successfully to non-mathematics graduates. It would not be easy to appreciate and comprehend every part of the book as it covers a wide range of physics & engineering applications. (not many of us are experts in all fields) However, the book is an excellent platform to start learning about tensors, after which one can go on to read the classics on tensors. I'd recommend the book to any senior or graduate engineering student (physics and maths students might find the book "less challenging").
Vectors and tensors in engineering and physics
It's a good-level book in tensors' algebra and calculus. Besides, physical examples help you better understand the mathematical concepts. On the other hand, I think it does not have enough applications about vector calculus (Frenet formulas, scalar potentials, Maxwell equations...).I would have also preffered it to contain more about general tensor theory: pseudotensors, curvilineal coordinates, and also about Riemann spaces. Despite this, it's an excellent book where you can see mathematics aplied to science; this is the important thing for physicist and engineers
