Reviews of Castings Practice: "Castings Practice is a book that everyone associated with Foundry Technology should possess, but particularly those involved in the actual design and manufacture of castings such as Method Engineers, Production Engineers and Foundry Management. Our industry is fortunate in having Professor Campbell, an academic trained as a physicist and a physical metallurgist who has also considerable experience of working in operational foundries using a variety of materials and processes. Not only does Campbell bring to his publications the wealth of his own research and foundry experience, but as Professor of Casting Technology at the University of Birmingham he is at the forefront of research and development of cast metals. Like all Professor Campbell’s books, Castings Practice has an intimate, easy style of writing that makes reading it an enjoyable experience and you cannot help being caught up the author’s enthusiasm for a Foundry Technology that needs to be scientifically based and conducted in a professional manner." - Tom Sutton, CEng Hon FICME, MIMechE ICME Technical Board 'Throughout, this book is packed with useful information... as a manual to guide the purchasers or specifiers of castings this book has started a trend that is long overdue.' Dr R Fenn FIMMM, Materials World, April 2005 "This new book by John Campbell is a wonderful example of passionate and professional treatises on the problem of how to make a good casting...On many occasions, the author argues with himself in
