I recommend this book to anyone brave enough to attemp thermal qualification of any type of electronic system, and many "real life" lessons are to be learned. A must in your collection of "got to have" titles !!!
Kordyban teaches heat transfer with practical examples, geared specifically towards electronics cooling. He debunks many myths and misconceptions along the way. The book really is entertaining, too. I laughed out loud. I wish more technical books were as enjoyable to read!
The only addition I would have liked would have been a discussion of horizontally mounted PCB's and how heat transfers from these boards.
A great read.

Get Steinberg's Cooling Techniques for Electronic Equipment if you want something useful for real applications.
