This presentation is like so many others on the subject. It is very long on classifications (much like a biology text), but short on the means to describe mechanisms mathematically. What good has the term "four bar linkage" or "kinematic inversion" ever done anyone? None, that I can see. It is only when we learn how to describe these things mathematically that we have real capability. I see classifications are largely useless.
There are numerous technical flaws in this presentation, starting with a misspelled word on the title page. There are many places where figures have been placed over text, obscuring the text. This is really poor formatting of the material.
I strongly suggest others not waste their time on this presentation.
