There aren't many textbook selections out there for professors of graduate reaction engineering, so I guess that's why some choose this book. This book reads like it's a compilation of individual papers from the authors, wrapped up and called a textbook. There is essentially no flow between chapters (not to mention an inconsistent font throughout the book). Another side effect of the paper-compilation method is the extensive amount of referencing done. This is OK in an academic periodical, but I expect a little more explanation from a textbook. Another gripe I have is that when going through some calculation techniques, huge (very important) steps will be glossed over and unexplained. There is a lot covered in this book. I would never recommend this book for an undergraduate class, however, I can understand why some professors choose it at the graduate level (We'll leave out the fact that my professor was buddy-buddy with one of the authors . . .).Was this review helpful?
