    One of the best in the A/C and Refrigeration field. Starts with the understandable in the broad field of refrigeration and ends with references worthy of everyone who works in this trade. Plenty of explanations...easily read and understood. Must be great since it has been translated into Porteguese and Arabic. not a color picture book, but one with some great black and white illustrations and excellent sketches. A good text or reference. If you are studying in this field or an old timer--it's worth your time and effort to have a copy within easy reach.
