Reviews

'With supplements including software downloads and additional problems and solutions available on an accompanying website, this volume can serve as a lifelong resource for the practising engineer.' CEP
'I have found that thermodynamics is one of the most difficult subjects to learn for students and teach for lecturers. This book navigates the subject with precision and in a friendly and reassuring tone ... The care that has gone into putting this book together is extraordinary and the result is one of the best textbooks on thermodynamics available, not only for engineering but also for physicists and chemists. I recommend it highly as a course textbook to undergraduates and university lecturers and as a solid reference for researchers.' J. Anders, The Aeronautical Journal
'The main text is supplemented by numerous figures and EES screenshots. Both the text and the figures are held in black and white with blue as a supplementary colour which helps in making both more accessible. The text is clearly written and the lines thought are easy to follow. The quality of the paper and the print are excellent and the handling of the book is easy despite its volume. It deserves a recommendation for students of engineering but also for physicists who are interested in technical realizations of physical concepts.' Manuel Vogel, Contemporary Physics
