"Professor Albright has done a fine job of bringing together a large number of contributions that cover the sector well. Many good examples are included throughout the text on the application of fundamental principles to engineering practice. This is a text that "grows" on a reader."
"...Several chapters in this (Albright's) volume, particularly those on the fundamental aspects of fluid flow, heat and mass transfer, are written in a very "accessible" form that students and practitioners are likely to find very useful indeed. There are essential and well balanced chapters on patents and intellectual property and ethics, and there is sensible advice on communication. Overall, I would strongly recommend that libraries and departments in universities, as well as consultants and industrial engineers, purchase this book."
