The is by far the best book on thermodynamics that I have read.It is often called as "the Bible" of Physics by students who are studying Physics at the undergradute and postgraduate level in Indian universities.Most concepts can be understood which can clear the doubts in the students mind.Such a book is very essential for them.

I used this book in my undergraduate thermodynamics/statistical mechanics course. I found it to be quite good. It's fairly easy to read and provides enough detail to give the reader a good understanding of the material.

The exercises are challenging enough to be useful, but not so difficult as to leave the reader feeling hopeless. I don't recall coming across many (if any) errors in the text or in the solutions. Perhaps the other reviewers who found lots of problems simply didn't understand how to arrive at the correct answer.

The book is a decent first course on thermodynamics. My main issue with it was that most of the 'problems' were trivial exercises in algebra, although a few were worthwhile. Parts of the book were dull, but some sections were quite interesting. I found there to be fewer errors than some of the other reviews might lead you to believe.

Format: Hardcover
The book was full of typos, just do a few problems and check the answers in the back if you don't believe me. I have never seen a seventh edition with so many mistakes. At times it was readable but more often it was not. I thought the last few chapters were very good, however. The flow of material seemed quite logical, but I thought some important things were not stressed enough. I just cannot justify giving this book less than two stars, or more than three.
