Format: Paperback
Do not believe this book's title. The best title should be "Something about heat transfer calculations." Do not believe that Mr. Myer Kutz is the author of this book: he is just a compiler. A professional compiler. This is bad practice of some publisher to misguide readers by placing the compiler's name on the book's cover as the book's author. All the chapters are written by the experts in the appropriate areas, but selection of subjects is quite random. If you are one of this book's authors, buy this book, put it on a shelf, and be proud. Individual chapters can be interesting to the specialists, but the book as a whole is intended for large university libraries only.
