Written in an informal, first-person writing style that makes abstract concepts easier to understand, PRINCIPLES OF ENGINEERING THERMODYNAMICS provides strong coverage of fundamental concepts and applications. To help readers develop a better understanding of how to apply thermodynamics in their careers and a stronger intuitive feel for how the different components of thermodynamics are interrelated, the book asks readers to explore how changes in a particular parameter can change a device's or process' performance. Readers are encouraged to develop computer-based models of devices, processes, and cycles and to take advantage of the speed of Internet-based programs and computer apps to find thermodynamic data, just as practicing engineers do.

"Nice presentation pace, and the examples are well placed and numerous."
"I really like the methodical approach teaching the student to use a "process" for solving the problems. I really like how you use the software to develop graphs and show trends. This develops the engineering judgment that we desire for our students to have."
"Good use of practical examples overall. Good flow from one topic to another. I really like the clarity of the writing. Overall, the easiest-to-read Thermo text that I have seen."
"The nature of topics is well presented with concepts from one chapter as a building block for the concepts in the following chapter. The author has provided many practical examples to illustrate the theory. The material is well written and up to the point."
..".the author's strength is his informal, first-person writing style. It is an easy read for students."
