Mechanical Engineering is one of the most exciting and competitive field of Engineering. Reading some wonderful books will save your time and help you discover a number of fresh aspects to the field. I am listing down few must read books for a Mechanical Engineer:

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.

3.Erik Oberg Machinery's Handbookis again a book read by most mechanical engineers along with manufacturing engineers, designers and technicians. It focuses on the tools and the processes and explains each concept very clearly for the deep understanding of the reader.

4.Fundamentals of Thermodynamics by C. Borgnakke and R. E. Sonntagis a wonderful book written on thermodynamics which is a nice read for students, academics and professionals. It provides the clear understanding of the various topics covered under thermodynamics.

5.W. D. Callister and D. G. Rethwisch's Materials Science and Engineering: An Introduction -is again a nice book which focuses on Material Science and the relationship of structural elements and the materials. It is a comprehensive guide to understand the importance of Material Science in Mechanical Engineering.
