In general the text is incredibly consistant and well written. The examples and problems grow from a relitively basic level to those that can only be solved with advanced engineering Mathematics. The progression builds on itself in a nice way.
A Practical Tip: The best thing to do with "Rules of Thumb for Chemical Engineers" is to carefuly remove the binding and put it into a 3-hole notebook (e.g., the GPA databook) and then file all the classic process design articles with the appropriate chapters.
It will never go out of style, and you'll even look smarter with it sitting on your shelf.
Other very interesting side of this book is the tensorial approach that can be percived in his study.
For a best start in chemical engineering, this book provides what you need and what you wuill need.
However, the subject is so vast that each reader often develops his/her own way of understanding and appreciating it. It's a daunting task to write a book on this subject that would cater to most of, if not all the readers. That way this book, representing one of the earliest and extremely valuable attempts, will remain a classic.
The problems at the end of chapters deserve special mention. They're an excellent collection and any student who sincerely works all of them will have a thorough understanding of the basics and can appreciate the subject's nuances and beauties very well.
