First of all, this book is not a substitute for any textbook but must be used alongwith any text on thermodynamics. What I liked the most about this book was the simple-minded approach of explaining a subject which is usually thought to be intimidating and complex. If you are looking for an exhaustive study of the subject, this is not the book for you. But, if the regular textbooks leave you with an unsure feeling, take a look at this book (just 103 pages with minimal equations) and you will see thermodynamics in a whole different light

This books is great for engineering students taking thermodynamics. I'd probably recommend using this early in the [thermodynamics]course or during the thermodynamics portion of a chemistry course. The book gives extremely helpful descriptions over topics covering the first law with easy to understand analogies,process efficiencies, the second law, and a general understanding of statistical mechanics. The greatest thing about this book is probably the way the author guides the reader through proofs.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
