Recommends it for:
I first used BS&L over 30 years ago for my first Transport classes in Chemical Engineering. It's depth and breadth is such that it was a primary text for four other courses I took later in grad school. I pulled the book out a couple of days ago to review my understanding of heat transfer to help explain it to some youngsters.
To those who complain that it has too much math...take up a new field. Math and science are inextricably linked. Science isn't just your high school teacher babbling abo

Transport phenomena can be a tough topic, but the book explains things well and there are plenty of sample problems and examples.

Recommends it for: people interested in science text books
i'm not really recommending this book but want to go on the record as stating that this is the most elegant textbook i have ever come across. the entire text is organized around an analogy between the balance equations for momentum, energy, and mass.
Buku ini digunakan buat mata kuliah proses transfer. Proses transfer itu dibagi jadi 3, transfer momentum, transfer massa, dan transfer energi. Kata pak dosen, "sebenarnya buku ini lebih cocok buat mahasiswa S-2".

are you a chemical engineer? do ya wanna be one...then you will know the material in this classic....
I not only love it ...I teach from it when possible...
