The book is well written and articulates challenging material in a clear and easy to understand manner.

Some comment would be of great help here... Despite these drawbacks, I do think that the book is well worth the read and actually teaches me something useful.
Librarian
I'm giving this book two stars mainly because it was thin and lighter so I didn't have to drag another tome with me.

This book is great for theory, and stuff you might never really use again. I found it heavily lacking in applied controls however.

My process controls class, as I assume many classes are, was heavily involved with Laplace transforms, and didn't really get into real control schemes. Because hey, who wants to learn useful information that they can apply day to day in their future. Unless your that one ChemE who actually, for some reason, has to do Laplace transforms regularly.

My professor focused heavily on the early chapters in the book, and I felt that the examples were light and lacking. There was plenty of theory, but their was often no bridge to the application of that theory in the book.

I'm giving this book two stars mainly because it was thin and lighter so I didn't have to drag another tome with me. The few examples were usually (but not always) clear and easy to understand. And the problem sets were not needlessly difficult.

I would absolutely, not recommend this book for self study, nor as a way to refresh/update yourself.

I don't have many complaints about the content of the book.

However a good deal the international editions may seem when purchased through third-party sellers, I wouldn't buy them. I've heard some people have had good luck with international editions, but for this book the international and USA editions do not mesh up at all. Luckily, I had a friend with the USA edition to verify homework problems and assigned reading. If you really want the cheaper book and can't afford the USA edition, make sure you have a friend with the USA edition who can verify your homework problems. They don't always mesh up.

This book was very informative for an otherwise challenging class. The book is well written and articulates challenging material in a clear and easy to understand manner.

This seemed to be a very basic, yet good book. It did well covering all the basics of process dynamics and control in the most understandable way possible.

This book was super easy to read. I found that the examples went along well with the text, and the text was generally interesting which was a nice surprise.
