Brand New, Same Chapters, Problems are mixed up
By Bryan H.
The book was brand new and looked great. The chapters are all identical to the US edition, and so far all of the same problems are in the book. However, the problems are out of order from the US edition which can lead to confusing HW assignments, but it's pretty easy to figure out how they switched. Overall a great deal on this book

Great book for application of process safety
By Cassie Campbell
Great book if you are looking to learning practical application of process safety. The book has pretty much no derivations and cuts straight to the chase. All equations are summarized well and the use of each equation is well noted.

I bought this book for the class. I liked the contents a lot. It covers broad variety of topics all useful for a chemical engineer. Lots of examples. One thing I didn't like about the book, is that it has some errors in the formulas. I already used couple of things there for real technical tasks. (I am still a student)
