"One of the most important strengths I noticed after reading Chapter 1 was the detailed description about the different kinds of heat exchangers. This kind of description is ideal for students and industry professionals. ... Looking at the contents and title, the author has made efforts to cover all aspects of heat exchanger design related to concepts, materials, geometry, fabrication, quality control and maintenance. …. I found it extremely useful as a design reference guide for industry professionals or course text book for engineering students."

"This book succinctly summarizes the essential information needed for thermal-hydraulic design/rating of heat exchangers. The author has done a most credible job of sifting through the vast body of work in the applied heat transfer literature to produce a lucid reference document."
––Dr. Kris Singh, Chief Technology Officer, Holtec International, Marlton, NJ
