The images in this book are of little to no help. They are all black & white (not a bad thing) and printed small and rather poorly. The points of view illustrated in most of the images beg the question - why show this? The lighting of the interior views is poor, also subtracting from their usefulness. The diagrams are very basic and some are printed far too small to be useful. Only the complete neophyte will find use from this information.
I would recommend finding this book at your library first before dropping the money on this one. I only wish my library had the book so I could have saved the money.
Illustrations could be vastly improved if properly labelled and explained; many (borrowed from original sources, and reduced in size) contain type that is far too small to read.
With attentive editing, this could have been a far better, more concise book. Who but an HVAC engineer needs page after page of tables and formulas for calculating compressor-type air conditioner sizing!
