Format: Paperback
This book was recommended to me by my Thermodynamics professor when I told him I wish to learn more in the subject. At first the content was hard to grasp but when I kept on reading it all made sense bit by bit. I started understanding all little basics of Thermodynamics that were always hidden in my mind. I first started studying Thermo from a book by Rayner Joel. A good book for beginner but never goes into much details and does not answer those fundamental questions that always seem to keep you away from loving the subject. That sense of the unknown is diminished to a great extent by this book. This book deals more with the physics than mathematics of the thermodynamics. ideal for a graduate or even interested undergraduate student in engineering. It gives more importance to understanding the first principles than overwhelming you with the math and unwanted information like some other books. Go ahead and buy this one if you want to fall in love with Thermodynamics.

As other reviewer put it, ... for the interested student in Thermodynamics - explains some concepts in more detail, I'd recommend it as a complementary book or as a course book only if taken with a good lecturer and if the course is long. Examples really illustrate the topic at hand, recommends skipping some parts at first reading, as Thermodynamics concepts are very 'mixed' within, the book does good doing this. No exercises. I'd say in level of depth is: Textbook -> This book -> Research

- Amazon experience: well... even though I'm from Mexico, I still buy here when I can, It's great when you buy from a seller and they send you your products by a delivery company (FedEx, DHL,UPS), BAD when you order via common postal service,I bet USPS is great but Mexico's is horrendous (this might have been stolen), so amazon does an awesome job coordinating sells from other small businesses and great at not dealing with problematic bureaucracy. I often recommend Amazon.
