1. Marks' Standard Handbook for Mechanical Engineers by E. A. Aballone, T. Baumeister, and A. Saeghis one of the best books available for the Mechanical Engineering. It has been a standard for Mechanical Engineers for a long long time. It covers all the aspects of Mechanical Engineering and is a nice read for everyone interested in this field.


2. Shigley's Mechanical Engineering Design by R. Budynas and K. Nisbettis a book for mchine design which is an important part of mechanical engineering. It illustrates all the basic and advanced concepts of mechanical engineering very clearly so that you can understand it with ease.
