Statics for dummies by James H Allen

No statics book can tell you how to solve every possible problem you encounter. What Statics For Dummies tells you is what you need to know and why you need to know it. Why are three-dimensional problems easier to solve with vector formulations than with scalar methods? What exactly is equilibrium, and how do Newton’s laws guarantee it? How do you know the difference between a truss and frame? All of these topics are at the heart of understanding statics; after you’ve got these basics down, actually solving a statics problem is a snap!
