- E M Trent, Ph. D., D. Met. in Metallurgy at Sheffield University., Edward Moor Trent was born in England and was the first to describe the diffusion wear mechanisms in tungsten-carbide-cobalt cutting tools. This work was the foundation for new grades of carbide for cutting steels, and subsequently for the development of coated cutting tools. Trent was a prominent lecturer in the Industrial Metallurgy Dept. at Birmingham University and was awarded the "Hadfield Medal" by the Iron and Steel Institute in recognition of his contributions to metallurgy. His accomplishments are highly regarded among professionals in the field today.

This book should be in the reference library of every engineer involved in metal cutting in any capacity, and it seems to be the textbook of choice for teaching the subject. It is destined to become the standard against which any other book on the subject of metal cutting will be measured!...wonderfully thorough, well organized, readable and well illustrated text or professional reference book. -Robert W. Messler, Jr., Professor/Materials Sciece & Engineering
