Introduction to Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics, 7/e, presents comprehensive coverage of the subject of thermodynamics from a chemical engineering viewpoint. The text provides a thorough exposition of the principles of thermodynamics and details their application to chemical processes. The chapters are written in a clear, logically organized manner, and contain an abundance of realistic problems, examples, and illustrations to help students understand complex concepts. New ideas, terms, and symbols constantly challenge the readers to think and encourage them to apply this fundamental body of knowledge to the solution of practical problems.
The comprehensive nature of this book makes it a useful reference both in graduate courses and for professional practice. The seventh edition continues to be an excellent tool for teaching the subject of chemical engineering thermodynamics to undergraduate students.

By J. Smithe
This book is really hit or miss. some of the chapters are really solid and good with their explanations but others are just complete crap and almost indecipherable with the huge amount of theoretical proofs thrown in. It's not the best book out there for learning thermo. UC boulder's learncheme page has better resources.

and the example problems in the text are horrible and leave much unexplained
By Amazon Customer
While this book covers a lot of material relevant to thermodynamics, it does so in a confusing manner. The text is hard to read, equations and variables are not explained well, and the example problems in the text are horrible and leave much unexplained.

Lots of words little real explanation
By C. Drouganis
I understand that this topic requires a lot of explanation. This textbook although verbose didn't cover much ground after introducing the topic. Often you will have a good explanation and example and then as the problem gets more difficult steps begin to be skipped by the author making it difficult to actually learn how to master the complicated questions given by your instructor. I feel that this book needs a substantial amount of work. It may have a lot of good information but lacks the ability to convey it to the student.
