Format: Paperback
This book is one of the two "Bibles" of Nuclear Engineering. LaMarsh's "Introduction to Nuclear Engineering" is the other IMHO. For those interested in a broad overview of Nuclear Engineering, it is my opinion that you should start with the LaMarsh book. Duderstadt's book contains a lot more math and can be difficult to follow without some solid math background and a few Nuc Eng courses under your belt. There are a few cases in the book where a series of equations leading to a conclusion skip a few steps. It's not as bad as the old "A=B and from this we see that e = mc2!" joke, but some work is required.
That said, this books drawbacks are also its strengths. It has stood the test of time [my copy is over 20 years old] and will probably remain relevant for another 20 years. It is to my knowledge well prepared and error free, and a must-have for anyone interested in nuclear reactor engineering.

A good, solid, book for a undergraduate student in nuclear engineering or anyone with a physical sciences background who is interested in learning more about nuclear power operations and analysis. Very clear text with plenty of information on topics (i.e., reactor design) that often confuse students. -Mike Walker Thorsvedtt

This is a great introductory textbook for Nuclear Reactor Analysis/ One-Speed diffusion model/Multigroup Diffusion method and core design. It was published a while ago - in 1976, but remains to be one of the best textbook on the topic.

Chances are good that if you are studying nuclear engineering you will encounter this book and many others that reference it, and for good reason. This book is well written in a conversational style that explains difficult concepts clearly with a dash of humor. The book has not been updated in something like 30 years but the science has not changed and I have found no major mistakes or typos.

This book is well worth buying if you are a little ways in to your studies, but probably a bit over the head of a beginning student.

I got this book for a class and it was the professor's first time teaching. He couldn't help us much so we were forced to learn from this book on our own. It was almost impossible for us(about 5 students) to learn from this book. I ended up buying LaMarsh's "Introduction to nuclear reactor theory". It was the same info and much easier to understand.

This book is one of the fundamental cornerstones of academic nuclear engineering. I just finished reading it from cover to cover (studying for my phd candidacy exam). The lack of commas after prepositional phrases drove me crazy, but it's definitely a thorough introduction to many different nuclear topics.

In my opinion, it's getting a little dated. For example, the first page says "It is anticipated that some 500 nuclear power plants will be installed in the United States alone by the year 2000...". The book is nearly 40 years old now, but a suitable replacement just isn't out there. I also see a lot of room for improvement on the questions at the end of each chapter - they're often too vague and high-level. Regardless, I highly recommend this book for any future nuclear engineer's textbook collection.

It shouldn't be used as an undergraduate textbook (though it was for me, unfortunately). If you're looking for an easier textbook with the same material, I highly suggest "Introduction to Nuclear Engineering" by Lamarsh.
