The product is alright - the format of the chapters could maybe be revised for a better flow (especially from the first two to the third.).

... but to buy this book for class. Sadly, this is the most terrible engineering textbook I have ever encountered. The writing is wordy and not at all helpful, except for the occasional very very important piece of information buried in a useless paragraph. Overall, this text has tons of good information, but good luck finding/deciphering it.

I feel like this book is just case study after case study. While I know that case studies can be useful, having them one after the other has made this textbook a pain to read through.

I used this book in my chemical engineering process design course and found it immensely helpful. Many of the homework problems are excellent ways to practice using design software such as ASPEN. The methods and figures are clearly explained and easy to use if studied thoroughly. In general, this book deftly links the undergraduate chemical engineering curriculum to skills needed for industrial work. In particular, the book excels in its explanation of methods for estimating the size and price of process units in chemical engineering. It also builds awareness of the scale and nature of industrial processes, and the economic criteria needed for successful processes. The supplementary material is easily accessed online through the Wiley website and has many interesting process design problems worked out.

It was slightly damaged when it arrived. There was no protective shipping material. I originally thought it wasn't sent because my campus mail room lost it, so it actually did arrive on time. However, my campus mail room lost it, so that is not the seller's fault.

This was a very expensive book but you can tell it was cheaply made. The binding starts to fall apart practically after you open it for the first time. I would tell you to go with the International version or get a paperback copy. This book is not worth the money.

As far as I remember, this was a decent reference to have. It's been a while since I took the class that used it, and I haven't used it since, I'm sad to say.

This book provides a lot of useful charts for process equipment costing, sizing and design. a must for a chemical engineering undergrad
