Format: Hardcover
This book is my Bible. It does not explain you how to add 2HP to the engine, it explains how all that works and why, with theory, numbers and serious real world tests.
You may be interested in the theory: you'll find all you need to understand more detailled research papers.
You don't need theory: you may simply trust very comprehensive and clear conclusions which explain with figures and numbers how thinks work.
The book covers Spark Ignited and Diesel engines, indirect and direct injected.
The book does not cover recent works on high speed SI (like Honda VTEC) and turbo-diesel engines, as well the indirect injected stratified combustion engines.

Format: Hardcover
I'm not a mechanical engineer and I have been able to follow the book well. It goes really in depth in some places, so you have to know when to skip a few pages. But it is fine for a final year undergrad course, and I'm sure it would work for a grad course as well, but if you don't have a good math and science background (ie engineering), then just research [...] and then subscribe to a few car magazines. There is a lot of practical info in here as well, but don't kid yourself, most of this is theoretical backround. I am an electrical engineer who wanted to get into hybrid vehicles, and I think if you are like me and want to just buy one book on ICEs, this is it.

almost all the areas concerning internal combustion engines are covered in proper detail. it is useful for related undergrad and grad studies, also an indispensable reference for grad research work in engine technologies.

Written 10 years ago, the author spent just over a decade to finish this book. Having said that, there are still a lot to learn from this book. I am currently using it as THE textbook of my course (undergraduate and postgraduate).

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Okay. So I ordered this book for technical purposes because I'm an M.E. major with a concentration in Automotive. I haven't actually read that much of it, but from what I have read, it's WORTH EVERY PENNY. However, if you're going to buy this, know that it is both expensive and DENSE material. You will read a little, have a bunch of questions, embark on a journey to get most of them answered and have some epiphany about what you've read, and then get back to the material where you left off and repeat the process. I don't know how else to describe how to digest it. I have a copious number of expert professors at my university, so I don't have a problem with that, but for the reader who doesn't, maybe a simpler book would be better.

It looks, at first glance, exactly the same as the US edition. Take care ordering that you choose the item you actually want. The other international editions are yellow, but this one had the same green cover as the US edition.

Format: Paperback
This is a comprehensive book on Internal combustion engines and I think it must be the most comprehensive among internal combustion engines books. I doubt however that this can be used as a textbook to learn from. I would be best suited for postgraduate students or researchers. It requires appreciable effort and skill on the part of the reader not only because it extends to almost every aspect of the engine operation (thermodynamics, gas exchange, heat transfer, combustion SI and CI, performance, ideal cycles, engine modelling, air pollution among others) but also because the writing style is very dense. In my opinion an undergraduate student may easily lose the forest for the trees. I recommend it only to researchers working on internal combustion engines and to experienced professionals.

For a more explanatory book I highly recommend an older book, 'Internal Combustion Engines and Air Pollution" by Edward Frederic Obert. This book is written in a clear manner and contains the theoretical engineering background and above all demonstrates a refreshing and fruitful engineering way of thinking.

I was glad to find that there was a paperback version of this book available, I seem to remember it was the most expensive book I purchased while in college. The format is a bit dated but otherwise its a great book and is/was considered to be the best internal combustion engine text on the market back in the day.
The book does get complicated, but you can still get a lot out of it even if you are not overly quantitative. The book was previously used for graduate level engineering courses at MIT, so the quantitative part is pretty involved too.
