Review

It is a very well-structured book and, when reading it, it becomes clear that it is indeed for the non-engineering professional as mentioned in the title and in the introduction of the book... Technically speaking, the contents of the book are very good and allow the reader to understand all the processes present in different types and steps of water and wastewater treatment. This is also supported by the very good and straightforward way of explaining things and, as already mentioned, the very good structure of the book... In conclusion, this book is a very good introduction and reference book to water and wastewater treatment, especially for the non-engineering professional.

Very good book. I am not an engineer, but work in water treatment business. This book gave me a propper understanding of the water treatment process. Now when our engineers talk about water treatment I understand everything. It is a first book that everyone should read before they try more difficult and professional literature.

I found this text useful as a mnemonic, a memory tool. There are useful explanations of conventional tools for treating wastewater and water. You won't find many useful graphics but it is a book for the non-professionals. Personally, I find such textbooks useful because of the varied business of the design engineer. One year you're working steel mills next year chemical plants, a few years later refineries.

I know this review is brief but I hope it was useful. I recommend this book for what it is: a how-does-it-work text.

The book is dis-joint, repetitious, verbose, and poorly written. It's a tedious read and provides no other information than a very basic over-view of the subject matter. The black and white only photos and diagrams are of poor quality; the diagrams are repeated throughout the book. The only reason I rated it as one star is because you must give it at least one. While it might be less expensive than others of its genre, the price is not justified by its informational value. I would not recommend this book to anyone.

good discussion of the processes in plain English, sometimes I wish it were a bit more detailed but this book is not intended for that audience
