It explains thermodynamics very well.
ald
The book also includes copious tables of thermodynamical property data that can - and sometimes must - be consulted to solve the problems.

The actual edition that is printed is not even correct.

If you read only one book on Thermodynamics, make it this one.

I would strongly encourage students of science - whether physics, chemistry, or even biology and geology - to study this book before moving on to more specialized texts. This book is the best "big picture" book for Thermodynamics I have seen, and it manages to cover a wide variety of the different aspects of the subject, at times in surprising depth. Plus it does so in the most natural context for this subject: engineering, where it was born.

I have read quite a few books on Thermodynamics before this one, and I was really surprised and delighted by how much I got out of it. I'd give it six stars if I could.

The prerequisites are basic multivariable calculus and elementary ordinary differential equations as well as elementary classical mechanics. Some elementary fluid mechanics would be helpful too, but is by no means essential.

The book includes more than enough problems for even the most avid student, and the problems cover the gamut from simple plug-and-chug, to computational problems that can be solved using the software included on the DVD, to conceptual questions, to open ended design and investigation problems.

The book also includes copious tables of thermodynamical property data that can - and sometimes must - be consulted to solve the problems.

The only substantial criticism I have concerns some of the optional sections that typically end the chapters. In particular the one on entropy rubbed me the wrong way by trying to explain entropy as disorganization. The example of the messy library having more entropy than the one where the books are organized appropriately on the shelves really bothered me.

This book is an excellent textbook for Mechanical Engineers studying thermodynamics. Everything is explained clearly, the example problems show all steps arriving to an answer, and the text is very easy to read and comprehend. Highly recommended book for engineers. Only downside would be the problems at the end of the chapter are rather simple and too easy to solve. I would suggest to use this book to learn the concepts and then use other textbooks like Moran's Fundamental of Engineering Thermodynamics to solve advanced problems.

Explanations were clear and allowed for quick reading. This book gives a TON of examples, ranging from super easy to the impossible. My favorite part is the mass of indexes that quickly supply constants and pressure/temperature data.

I am great fan of Professor Yunus Cengel. All his books are Professional Engineering master pieces. I use all his books for engineering references. Great author!

Seems like a very thorough coverage of Thermodynamics principles annd concepts. Not too technical and not too difficult to understand. If a person needs to learn thermodynamics this book should be a big help.

This book is a solid and useful engineering textbook. The examples are really clear, helpful, and most importantly line up with the other problems. This book is reliable: if the subject matter is difficult for a student to grasp this book will be a pretty good resource. I suggest pairing the book with a 'thermo' online help resource for optimal results.

A well written book, however like most modern text books there is a lot of filler and useless information. The book could really be half as thick as it currently is.

One of the more helpful engineering books used as a Mechanical Engineering Major. As someone who would rather eat his daily vegetables than read a textbook, I was reluctant to dive into this one. Unlike many other engineering textbooks that just have a big wall of text, this textbook has many example problems and big easy to read diagrams that help portray the material in a visual manner (Finally!). It is also a good idea to read the end of every chapter, where they take a real world approach to each concept in a way that is actually interesting and thought provoking. This is the first textbook that I actually enjoyed using.

Book was used for Thermodynamics, Power Plant Design, and Heat Transfer.
