If you have ever felt annoyed at the imprecision with which other authors treat the concepts of mass transfer, then this book is recommended reading. For example, few authors treat the issue of averageing mass transfer coefficients (local, arithmetic mean, log-mean) with such care - in fact most authors simply ignore this issue altogether. I find this degree of detail more conducive to understanding than the tacit omissions in other books. The price to pay is of course complexity and this book requires a sound priming in mass transfer.

Excellent review of fundamental laminar and turbulent mass transfer. Parts of the book are not suited for undergraduate study.

I found this text be be very precise and clearly written. The greatest advantage it has over other texts on the subject is in the precision and clarity of the definitions. The focus is more toward fundamentals than applications however and is written at a high level. While this is an older book and consequently nothing in the way of new advancements in the field, all the seminal works on mass tranport are in the references. There are better texts out there for an undergraduate course (Welty et al. for example), however for a graduate level course, or for someone wanting a deeper understanding of the fundamental science, this book is outstanding. (I too had the author's class several years ago and learned much from it!)

I too have had the class offered by this author. I would agree with the previous reviewers rather crude comments. This is not the text of choice one would read to learn about Diffusional Mass Transfer. Several other books on the market far exceed this book in terms of the clarity of concepts presented, better examples, and overall writing style.
