Neil Sclater switched his career from engineering in the military/aerospace industry to writing and editing in the field of electromechanical and electronic technology. After years as a staff editor for engineering magazines, he set up his own consulting firm in technical communications. While serving a varied list of industrial clients over a 25-year period, he contributed hundreds of articles to various engineering publications. Mr. Sclater has degrees from Brown University and Northeastern University. He has authored or co-authored eleven McGraw-Hill Professional books, including two earlier editions of this book. The late Nicholas P. Chironis was a consulting engineer and mechanical design editor for Product Engineering magazine and an editor for other McGraw-Hill technical magazines. Early in his career he was a mechanical engineer for IBM, Merganthaler Linotype, and other companies, as well as a product design instructor at the Cooper Union School of Engineering. Mr. Chironis earned B.S. and M.S. degrees in mechanical engineering from Polytechnic University, New York.
