"The 2nd Edition of the Handbook for Induction Heating is equivalent to having 3 world class experts on staff without paying high priced consulting fees. For your seasoned, and probably more importantly, your new and emerging manufacturing and process engineers, this comprehensive guide provides the details your company needs to compete around the world. Significant technical achievements have occurred since 2002 with the last edition. Rudnev, Loveless, and Cook have compiled an indispensable, world class text replete with the basics and advanced concepts of induction heating. The case studies also illustrate and inspire the design and deployment of innovative concepts which transform theory into application. If you are not reading and using this tour de force, it is safe to say that your competitors have read and marked up their copies."

"As an automotive plant we are performing several heat treatment processes, among them induction hardening. Rear axle shafts, ring gears, couplers, etc. ... all require induction hardening in order to obtain the required material properties like case depth, surface hardness, ... . Although we have decades of experience, it is of crucial importance to have -theoretical and practical- technical support from specialists. The Handbook of Induction Heating is an exceptional help and reference work for everyone that is involved in IH. Not only when everything goes fine, but also when you face problems like undesirable or unexplainable results after IH, machine issues, etc. This book has given us the answer to many questions over the years and it will continue to do that. The 2nd edition is even more enhanced, and contains again a wide spectrum of many different issues that belong to the world of the practitioners of IH. One more thing to add: in the seldom event that one of the problems you face is not mentioned in the book, you can easily turn to the authors and ask them your question. This is what we experienced and appreciate enormously."
-Mike Bogaerts, Supervisor Materials and Chemical Lab, CNH Industrial, Antwerp, Belgium
"Induction heating is used in many applications which include heat treatment, forging, extrusion, rolling, bonding, brazing, sealing, shrink fitting, drying, and bending. A thorough knowledge of the process enables one to optimize its use in ever-increasing number of applications. This handbook assimilates the broad experience of the authors to accomplish this need."
- Tirupathi R. Chandrupatla, Rowan University, New Jersey, USA
"A very comprehensive, must-have textbook that heat treatment engineers should definitely read. You can learn every aspect of induction hardening and become an expert starting from scratch."
-Tusas Motor Sanayii, Ali Firat Dinler, Turkey
