From the reviews:

"The book of Librescu and Song is a monograph devoted to the theory of composite anisotropic thin-walled beams … . The monograph can be recommended to research engineers in applied mechanics and in application areas of aeronautical and aerospace, of mechanical, civil, and naval engineering, but also to graduate students and lecturers. … enables the reader to get an excellent overview and a deep insight in the thin walled anisotropic beam theory." (Johannes Altenbach, Zeitschrift für Angewandte Mathematik und Mechanik, Vol. 86 (8), 2006)

"This monograph is concerned with linear and nonlinear theories of composite thin-walled beams, developed by the authors and their collaborators. … The material of the book is well presented. … The book will be of interest to all those working in the field of thin-walled structures. Specifically, graduate students in mechanical and aerospace engineering and applied mathematics as well as practicing engineers will find new and important results in this book." (Teodor Atanackovic, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1108 (9), 2007)
