    "Plant engineers, operators, millwrights, and anyone associated with the safe and reliable operation of rotating machinery in a plant will find this book to be a very useful reference. The listing of best practices, lessons learned, and supporting materials-obtained by the author over a 48-year time span during which he worked as a designer, end user, and consultant in the rotating machinery industry-will be invaluable to those mentioned above."--IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, March/April
