From the Back Cover
The second edition of this best-selling book provides thorough, updated coverage of unit operations in water/wastewater treatment. Chapter 1 through 5 now provide a strong background in chemical and biological concepts, reactor fundamentals, and other key process. Subsequent chapters present a practical approach to the design of water and wastewater treatment plants, carefully explaining new technologies that affect the design of such facilities. New problems and worked examples have been developed to give readers a greater practical understanding of unit operations.

2Lacks Explanations for Many Problems, Lots of Typoes and Incorrect Information
By C. Coffey
This is possibly one of the worst texts I have ever used. Many of the example problems contain typos or diagrams that do not match the given problem. Numbers are often pulled out of thin air without explanation. Many of the "answers" in the back of the text are incorrect. Some chapter problems cover material not covered in the chapters. Additionally, the solutions provided by the publisher are often incorrect. This textbook needs a significant overhaul before it can be considered appropriate for use in undergraduate or graduate programs!!

3Alright for undergrad. Wish I had rented.
By Kate
Poorly written, hard to follow examples, but okay for an economical undergrad student looking for a single book to cover water and wastewater treatment.
