This is a book in an area that beginning students in chemical engineering find it difficult to grasp. Several books on this subject, with varying titles, have appeared over the years. They are helpful in fully understanding the established text "Transport Phenomena" by Bird, Stewart, and Lightfoot (BSL). With the publication of the second edition of that book, Tosun's book on basic concepts becomes even more useful. While it stands on its own merits in the breadth, quality, and scope of the subject, it can also be a very useful adjunct to more advanced texts that assume a certain level of basic understanding.
Of the many books on basic concepts that I have seen, Tosun's book is perhaps the best written. The concepts are explained with the utmost clarity in simple and elegant language. It is eminently readable.
