    Book Description

    Wastewater Engineering: Treatment and Reuse, 4/e is a thorough update of McGraw-Hill's authoritative book on wastewater treatment.No environmental engineering professional or civil or and environmental engineering major should be without a copy of this book- tt describes the technological and regulatory changes that have occurred over the last ten years in this discipline, including: improved techniques for the characterization of wastewaters; improved fundamental understanding of many of the existingunit operations and processes used for wastewater treatment, especially those processes used for thebiological removal of nutrients; greater implementation of several newer treatment technologies (e.g., UV disinfection, membrane filtration, and heat drying); greater concern for the long term health and environmental impacts of wastewater constituents; greater emphasis on advanced wastewater treatment and risk assessment for water reuse applications; changes in regulations and the development of new technologies for wastewater disinfection; and new regulations governing the treatment, reuse, and disposal of sludge (biosolids). Greater concern for infrastructure renewal including upgrading the design and performance of wastewater treatment plants.

    This revision contains a strong focus on advanced wastewater treatment technologies and stresses the reuse aspects of wastewater and biosolids. ... Read more

    Don't buy this book it lies and it is way too much money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (tell everyone my review was helpfull) :-)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Textbook, Lacks Global Perspective
    I bought the book and it is worth every dollar, including the additional 18% sales tax in Israel. It is a monumental work, very clear and well written. We needed this book. Having said that, I feel that the reuse aspects in general and the "unplanned indirect drinking reuse" in particular, have received only a marginal coverage in the book. That may be sufficient for the U.S.A., but innumerable European and Asian cities base their water supply on rivers that are mostly treated wastewater. In Israel, agriculture is based on reuse yet in the book, agriculture has the same weight as golf courses. Again, in the U.S.A. it may be so, but certainly not in the rest of the world. Industrial reuse mentions only evaporative cooling and that without the critical problem of blowdown disposal. Additional examples would be helpful. In reuse issues, "emerging patogens" (i.e., those feared but yet inexistent) are given more attention that critical problems such as salt content and subsequent aquifer and soil salination. Table 13-6 does not even mention salt. The inclusion of European and Israeli contributors would have produced an even better, a more balanced work. ... Read more

    This text is a great introduction to Fluid Mechanics. The derivations are very easy to follow, and the problems apply to many real life situations. For graduate students, it may be a little to light weight, but for undergrads it provides a broad base of information.

    5-0 out of 5 stars good textbook
    Good textbook, good examples, and easy to read. Anyone with a solid physics & calculus background will be comfortable with this book.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Where's the beef??
    Lot of fluid problems, good graphics, and very good examples, though not nearly enough. You're going to need good lecture notes or a tutor.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Poor examples,
    The book is easy to read however, it is very hard to solve the problems. The author does not do a very good job showing which equation's are used. In the example problems the author bring's in values which are constant's but does not indicate what the values are and the units. It is a very hard text book to follow. However the derivation of the formulas are done very well.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is pretty good!
    I bought this study guide to help me in my geology class. It isn't the same edition as my textbook but it is still the same. The chapters are the same and it has really helped me remember the material. The pages have fill in the blank and multiple choice and practice quizzes. All the answers are at the end of the book. I recomend this for anyone who is taking geology and is using the "Earth" book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An outstanding introductory textbook in physical geology
    Despite the proliferation of introductory physical geology textbooks in recent years, none have surpassed the quality of Tarbuck and Lutgens' "Earth". The text is accurate, up-to-date, well-organized, and exceptionally lucid. The writing flows nicely and presents complex topics and ideas in a way that is easy for non-scientists to understand, while at the same time resisting the trend toward "dumbing-down" that has recently affected many introductory textbooks in Earth sciences. The book is also illustrated wonderfully with diagrams that are effectively designed, beautifully executed, and perfectly matched to the accompanying text. The photographs are likewise outstanding in subject and quality, with great efforts obviously having been made to find excellent pictures that complement the text and clearly illustrate the features and processes being described. The overall quality of the photographs is far better than in most other textbooks of this kind. Substantial improvements have been made for the sixth edition, including the addition of helpful illustrations to the glossary and the addition of many new photographs throughout the book (for example, compare the 5th and 6th edition pictures of drumlins, moraines, igneous rock textures, tsunamis, sinkholes, etc.). After examining many textbooks, I have decided to use this one in the undergraduate course I will teach next year.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Earth - an average introductory textbook
    This book has dozens of errors, but in its defense, I must say that every introductory textbook I've used or reviewed has similar errors. For example, thermal expansion due to daily temperature fluctuations does NOT fracture rocks. Fire fractures rocks, and local fires can occur in many deserts. The photo of a rock split is actually due to ice (not frost) wedging. Deserts can be freezing. The book does not address the importance of past climates. Most of North America's landforms were formed under wet, warm climates, not today's. The hydrologic cycle should be expanded to the geohydrologic cycle, which incorporates plate tectonics. Plate tectonics, as presented, is rather primitive. We're in, I'd say, 3rd generation plate tectonics, but it is not being taught. Mountain glacial landscapes are entirely misinterpreted, based on a false paradigm originating in the 1840s. Yosemite Valley is far more a relict tropical landscape than a glaciated one, and Bridalveil Falls has existed for 10s of millions of years before glaciation. Evolution of desert landscapes is equally as bad. The authors don't understand pediments, which are exhumed weathering fronts (as in Joshua Tree National Park) or exhumed detachments (as in the Mojave Desert). Etc., etc.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun for rocks!
    This book is an excellent introductory text, with a wide scoop and a clear and descriptive style. The pictures are gorgeous and informative, and the side notes (Boxes) are powerful examples of the topics being discussed, as well as fascinating sources of trivia (do you know what Bingham Canyon is?) that add flavor to the book! My only complaint was that there are no chapter summaries, but as the material was clear and concise, I had no need for them! ... Read more

    Book Description

    Two of the nation's largest corporations stand accused of causing the deaths of children. Representing the bereaved parents, the unlikeliest of heroes emerges: a young, flamboyant Porsche-driving lawyer who hopes to win millions of dollars and ends up nearly losing everything -- including his sanity.

    A Civil Action is the searing, compelling tale of a legal system gone awry -- one in which greed and power fight an unending struggle against justice. Yet it is also the story of how one man can ultimately make a difference. With an unstoppable narrative power reminiscent of Truman Capote's In Cold Blood, A Civil Action is an unforgettable reading experience that leaves the reader both shocked and enlightened.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A definite page-turner!
    I don't know why this book isn't on the New York Times bestseller list. There can be only one reason it's not there; the word isn't out YET. If you're a John Grisham fan, you'll treasure this read AND it's a true story!The author spent eight years following this case that began with a cluster of leukemia cases that popped up in Woburn, Massachusetts in the late seventies. The plaintiffs think the illnesses came from a contamination of the drinking water with TCE, trichloroethylene. Not much more can be said without giving away the resolution, but along the way you'll be amazed (and furious) at the personalities; the federal judge, the young, cocky, self-assured plaintiffs' attorney, Joel Schlichtmann, and his powerful adversaries, the attorneys for the big-monied corporate defendants.The author effectively draws you into the story with his perceptive prose and his clear understanding of the legal subtleties involved. He knows just where to pick you up and drop you off, chapter by chapter. Don't miss this one, but beware, once you start reading, you'll be hooked

    5-0 out of 5 stars Astonishing, an amazing book!!
    A Civil Action is one of the best books that I've read in the past 12 months! This is the story of the Woburn case, a case against W. R. Grace and Beatrice Foods, in which two of their subsideries poisoned two wells that were used as part of the city of Woburn's water supply. The poisonious water caused the deaths of several children and health complications of many adults. The book tells of the legal battle that the families and their lawyer faced when fighting against two multi-billion dollars company. Told in an easy flowing narrative that captures your attention and doesn't let go. I cheered, I cried, I cussed. Talk about injustice! The book left me with the feeling that if I could get my hands on a couple of the defendant's lawyers, violence and bodily harm would befall somebody, but it wouldn't be yours truly. Then, common sense enters the picture, and the best revenge on W R Grace and Beatrice Foods is that the story is told and is told by an excellent writer. There is a reason why this book is a best seller. But, I can't help to think that there is divine justice after all. And here I thought John Grisham's novels were fairy tales. This book proves the addage that truth is stranger than fiction. I wish the families of Woburn well! An excellent book!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Justice?
    This book is a depressing lesson in the ways that our judicial system don't work. An adverserial system of justice, by its very nature, leads not to an inquiry into the truth but instead to a polarized system where each side is fighting for its own side and disinterested in the merits of its opposition.

    While this book was, in many ways, a real downer, it was also a fascinating chronicle of litigation. I was immediately drawn in my the families' tragedies, Schlichtmann's flawed but good-hearted optimism, and the interaction between the lawyers and the judge. As Schlichtmann swirled deeper into debt, I found it impossible not to feel a growing sense of desparation along with him. The ending is bitterly disappointing, but in many ways the families eventually got what they wanted with subsequent EPA actions and criminal prosecutions.

    My husband and I are both attorneys. Last year, he was involved in a case in which the outcome was simply criminal. I felt I could relate in a deeper sense to the drama in A Civil Action after experiencing such a travesty of justice firsthand. We have to work within the confines of the flawed legal system that exists now, but we must accept that it is far from perfect. Judges and juries--as humans--get things wrong all the time. This book, in gripping prose, demonstrates this basic fact of life in all too vivid of detail.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Masterpeice
    Brilliant, enlightening, enteraining, and mindful work presented here by Jonathan Harr. Harr manages to consume you in the lives of all the characters of this book. The funny thing about the book is that it doesn't move you vicserally about changing the enviroment for the good, but moves you in a very cerebral way.

    I don't care one way or another about the enviroment and all those Greenpeace annoying little idiots. I do care about humanity and Harr shows it here. This is a must read.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Unknown soldier
    Jan Schlictmann, Anne Anderson, the Gamaches and all of the families in this book and beyond are not the only ones who were seriously impacted by this case. Look at what happened to 'GK ', a longtime former Woburn resident who was forced to leave Massachusetts under questionable circumstances...
    GK was a small child in Woburn in the 1960s. Bounced from family to family,handicapped, abused and severely neglected, GK had been treated out of state for years,living in a hospital with no visitors with a suspicious diagnosis prior to coming
    back to Woburn.From then he was treated at the same hospitals,lived in the same neighborhoods as the families mentioned in this book, appeared in Woburn district court, where the first complaints of water problems emerged and which file was later refused his review without reason. When this book came out, GK worked for Grace Co. in Cambridge,Mass. and was suddenly discharged even though an excellent job is said to have been done. Medical records began disappearing without explanation from the hospitals the cancer-diagnosed children were treated in, and a former guardian who had arranged for his new social security number began acting suspiciously.
    Symptoms of extreme monitoring and control began showing themselves, as GK became a target of increased audits, questionable activity at banks such as Fleet and Citizens, phone and communications tampering, threatening phone calls and being put under surveillance (including a possible FBI agent out of Tennessee, where Barry Mawn worked- Mawn is a Woburn native). Some speculated that mistaken identity had occurred, others that the federal government was waging war on a young child who simply put, survived a real tragedy in Woburn,Mass. Others speculated that a long term goal of erasing GK's existence was underway, propelled by Harr's book and a prior newspaper article detailing GK's search for his family roots.
    In the 1980s GK worked for a small service firm allegedly under the control of a New Jersey parent entity. This company routinely dumped toxic chemicals on the ground in Woburn and when GK objected to the policy, GK was forced to resign or be fired. Four to six years later, a man bearing the name of the sole officer of the parent to the service firm out of New Jersey was introduced to GK by a mutual friend. Subsequent research by GK many years later revealed that his 'friend' bore the same name as the chief officer of the parent company and lived in Massachusetts just as that executive allegedly did. This 'friend' suddenly became quite hostile when Harr's book came out and blamed GK for 'turning' on Grace Co. Additionally, the 'friend' introduced GK to an alleged private investigator linked to a Reading,Mass attorney who later transferred to a Winchester,Mass firm(Winchester was impacted by the Aberjona River) friend ostensibly to help GK figure out what was going on. This investigator it was later learned had ties to a private school in Woburn taught by a nun probably linked to the boy. ... Read more

    A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK
    A VOICE LITERARY SUPPLEMENT TOP 25 FAVORITE BOOKS OF THE YEAR
    AN ESQUIRE MAGAZINE BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR

    In the tradition of Being Digital and The Tipping Point, Steven Johnson, acclaimed as a "cultural critic with a poet's heart" (The Village Voice), takes readers on an eye-opening journey through emergence theory and its applications. Explaining why the whole is sometimes smarter than the sum of its parts, Johnson presents surprising examples of feedback, self-organization, and adaptive learning. How does a lively neighborhood evolve out of a disconnected group of shopkeepers, bartenders, and real estate developers? How does a media event take on a life of its own? How will new software programs create an intelligent World Wide Web?

    In the coming years, the power of self-organization -- coupled with the connective technology of the Internet -- will usher in a revolution every bit as significant as the introduction of electricity. Provocative and engaging, Emergence puts you on the front lines of this exciting upheaval in science and thought. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good introduction, with serious flaws
    This book provides a good introduction to the new field of emergence, the study of how complex, apparently "organized" global behaviors arise from the interaction of many autonomous parts operating locally without central control. Steven Johnson explains the principles and brings together many examples from biology (ants, slime molds, neurons) and other areas (games, software, the growth of cities).

    Unfortunately, Johnson has not made the effort to study his field thoroughly. He is very familiar with game software (e.g., SimCity), but I was shocked to find no mention of the first analysis of emergent behavior. In his classic "The Wealth of Nations" (1776), Adam Smith coined the term "the invisible hand" to describe the seemingly orchestrated order that emerges from the actions of individuals looking for things they need in a free marketplace. Smith's analysis, by the way, is both detailed and profound--a must for anyone interested in the topic of emergence.

    Also, Johnson seems to wander from his central topic at times, for example in the chapter on mind reading.

    Despite its gaps and occasional lapses, the book is definitely worth reading. The field is important both socially (do we need a centrally-run society or will the invisible hand work?) and technically. Johnson has done a good job of introducing it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Intriguing. Full of lots of provocative concepts.
    Emergence: the Connected Lives of Ants, Brains, Cities and Software by Steven Johnson is a compelling argument for higher order emergence from aggregates of lower order units. Like Stuart Kaufman's works on self organizing criticality-though a lot more easily understood than the latter- Johnson's discourse points out that order can be produced from apparent chaos when "rules" are in place and when some critical number of individuals interact with one another following these rules.

    Probably one of the more interesting living systems the author discusses is the slime mold, that unique creature whose cells can act autonomously as individuals or collectively as a unified whole. I'd heard of this phenomenon before, but at that time no underlying cause was given. Johnson notes that their inherently human hierarchical point of view had led researchers to look for pacemaker cells that dictated when, where, and under what conditions cells would form a collective. After years of looking, it became obvious that either no such cells existed or they were very subtly distinguished from the others. According to the author, recent research suggests a more bottom up organization, with individual cells making local decisions about the need to collectivize and using pheromone trails to attract others to them.

    Interesting too were the descriptions of emergent systems arising unconsciously from human interactions. The reader interested in modern social problems might benefit from the author's discussion of current top down changes in city organization and urban design. The anthropologist or student of mind/brain research might find his discussion of the rise in human awareness and the concept of self through so-called "mind reading" of interest.

    For myself, as a student of history, I enjoyed some of his perspectives on the rise of cities, "Cities have a latent purpose as well [as a manifest purpose] to function as information storage and retrieval devices....Ideas and goods flow readily within these clusters, leading to productive cross-pollination, ensuring that good ideas don't die out in rural isolation....And the extraordinary thing again is that this learning emerges without anyone even being aware of it (p. 108-109)."

    The changes that have occurred because of the feedback systems of the internet and the cable industry are also intriguing. Although like many people I've surfed the Amazon.com website, received my "suggestions" for potential purchases, expressed my likes and dislikes of the various books I've read, voted for reviewers whose critiques have help my decisions, and in short become part of a community of similarly minded people, I've not thought about the overall impact that this type of system creates as it spreads to other situations. Johnson makes some very interesting points regarding a bottom up movement in politics and the media and the loss of control by hierarchies. Unconnected, the individual makes little difference, but connected to others of like mind by way of the internet and feed back loops, the collective has power to change a great deal.

    Probably the most important point Johnson makes is that much of what arises from this higher order emergence is unpredictable. It might be "good" or "bad" from the point of view of a single unit. As with evolution-one of those situations where this type of action is seen-other types of emergence depend upon random decisions and actions of large numbers of individual units, be they ants, software Sims characters, or cities. One can predict that at some critical number of units the system will go through a "phase transition," suddenly becoming something else.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible
    The best-spent $10 or so of my life. Seriously.
    If you are a Software Engineer, or a "Computer Scientist", or you live your life online, you cannot afford to ignore this work, period.
    An incredibly lucid, enthralling, and accessible explanation of emergent behavior, swarm intelligence, and self-organizing systems, this book will change the way you think about the Internet, video games, the media, and life, both complex and "simple."
    Johnson shows the big picture, where Google fits into the picture, and why Slashdot, Alexa, EBay, and Amazon are significant, in terms of the evolution of the web.
    I now truly understand why, while AI is practical (and more pervasive than we realize), artificial sentience is not, and may be impossible altogether. For that matter, I now understand what sentience really is.

    If software of any kind is of interest to you (or even if it is not), do yourself a favor and let Mr. Johnson show you where it is headed.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Making scientific mountains out of ant hills.
    "Call it swarm logic" (p. 74). In his fascinating examination of slime molds, ant colonies, cells, cities, and computer software, Steven Johnson (MIND WIDE OPEN) introduces his reader to the cutting-edge theory of emergence in his 2001 book. He simplifies this complex field of research initiated in the mideighties (p. 85) through example and analogy. Examining ants, for example, Johnson demontrates how these unintelligent insects, "which dominate the planet in a way that makes human populations look like an evolutionary afterthought" (p. 73), organize into complex colonies that adapt in size and behavior to their environment as a single entity, thereby exhibiting a spontaneous and collective intelligence. Johnson then reveals that what connects ant colonies with slime mold, computer games, other living ecologies, the guild system of twelfth-century Florence, cell divisions, and software "is a recurring pattern and shape: a network of self-organization, of disparate agents that unwittingly create a higher-level order" (p. 21). "Just like the clock maker metaphors of the Enlightenment, or the dialectical logic of the nineteenth century," Johnson writes, "the emergent worldview belongs to this moment in time" (p. 56). Although this book may lack depth and detail at times, it is nevertheless an excellent starting point for readers (like me) interested in exploring this revolutionary scientific theory.

    3-0 out of 5 stars The Darwin myth in search of a theory
    Comparable to Kevin Kelly's Out of Control, although without that book's honesty in pointing out the limits of Darwin's theory before beginning, this work plies the Great Postdarwinian Hope that complexity theory will come to the rescue of the biology scandal, viz. Darwin's theory doesn't do it. If it did, what would be the point of these books? Much of the material is not without interest, but it is all a fishing expedition, and the minnows won't bite. The problem here is that the higher systems we see in history and culture simply won't yield to reductionist derivatives of current science.
    The idea of emergence is a good one. Check out the historical data of the so-called Axial Age. We have emergence right under our noses in world history, all we have to do is study it. But the great taboo is that we can't do that, because we have to stay confused. I guess it is not time for a paradigm shift, and this type of theory junk is the bone du jour for chewing on til when. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Wetlands Textbook
    I first picked this book up to consider a career as a wetland scientist (among other things) and instantly dove into the heaps of information provided. It is well written and easy to read with nicely labelled sections. I found that it had all sorts of information on the subject. It is highly useful.

    To date, this is THE book to get in the field. If you get any book on the subject, this is it. I was only mildly surprised after reading through much of it to find that it's the only textbook in my graduate class on wetland ecology and management and there appears to be no competition as a textbook.

    In short, it's very readable and immensely useful: A combination you can't go wrong with.

    The book is very shallow and not worth considering for any engineering or any technical degree. it might be good for high school level pre-engineering classes, but difinetly not at college or university level.

    This is a great text for technology based fluid mechanics. To elementary for an engineering student, but then it was meant for an engineering technology student. I find it easy to use.

    5-0 out of 5 stars ChE's couldn't survive without this book!
    This book is known as "BSL" on the University of Wisconsin - Madison engineering campus for its renowned authors and UW-Madison Professors: Bird, Stewart and Lightfoot. I was lucky enough to have ChE 320: Transport Phenomena, with Prof. Stewart in the late 80's and this book helped me through the class. To this day, I still use my copy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars It is commonly known as the bible of transport phenomena.
    The book gives a very in depth look at transport phenomena. A reader who understands this information will have no trouble at simpler subjects such as mass and heat transfer. A must for Chemical Engineers but would recommend the use of a good professor.

    2-0 out of 5 stars They must've gotten too Old
    While the first edition was the seminal standard, I don't see how the second edition can be considered the same. First of all just look at the back cover, that's glaring. The numeraters and denomenaters in the differential expressions are reversed from what they should be. Then on page 15 the data given for viscosity of water, the columns for dynamic viscosity in mPa-s and kinematic viscosity in cm2/sec are interchanged with each other from what would be correct. Such things make me hesitant to trust any of the rest of this text.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece
    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 about ecology and the "circle of life". This is hard science, the kind that builds nations and brings societies out of disease-infested environments. If you're using this text and can't take the heat, better get out of the kitchen.

    5-0 out of 5 stars a surprise may await you !
    I am very pleased with the content of the book - it is a classic. However, there's more to the package. First of all, I was surprised to receive the book from a bookstore in Taiwan, although Amazon never lead me to believe it would come form abroad. Second, the book had a large stamp on it saying "not for sale in the US". This, in itself, has to be illegal. Third, a page feel out of the book right away - although it said "printed in the US", it clearly was NOT US quality. So much for outsourcing!

    GREAT!!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars 94 S: Excellent Resource, Environmental Health professionals
    I have just reviewed the ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING AND SANITATION 1994 SUPPLEMENT, by Joseph A. Salvato and Joe E. Beck. It's a great resource for professionals seeking a broader vision of environmental health practice areas and where we are heading. Prof. Beck obviously put a lot of work into conceptualizing this volume and working with the distinguished contributors. It shows. In particular, I found the first chapter, Stakeholder Focused Interactive Planning (SFIP)by Joe Beck and Steven Ison to be a brilliant piece on the desirability of (indeed, the imperative for our profession to) include the public in problem-solving and planning. I have used this process and mediated disputes ranging from siting controversies (haz. waste facility siting in Massachusetts) to determining future land use options at Hanford in the nuclear weapons complex. I commend both Beck and Ison for their clear portrayal of the paradigm as well as the steps one undertakes in conducting such planning. Federal government engineers and planners have been learning the hard way about what happens when decisions are made without public input and without regard to the values, interests, and expectations of so-called stakeholders. At Hanford, more than $20 billion in appropriations has yielded preciously little in terms of actual cleanup: one may wonder if Congress will continue to appropriate the substantial $6 billion a year for the Dept. of Energy's Environmental Management Program without consensus of the public on #1) the benefits or #2) the ameliorated risks from present expenditures. Current stakeholders come from a wide range of public interest groups and they do not get along particularly well. They do not have current programs or projects that reflect the use of the SFIP and researchers should be asking themselves, "Why not?" (Resources for the Future [RFF] has an on-going research project that tackles public participation in environmental decision making).

    I would also like to comment on Ch. 6 "The Institutional Environment: Biosafety" by Darly Rowe. The importance of Dr. Rowe's conclusion that we must rely on consultation and working with the client on biosafety issues cannot be overstated. I also like the typology which places biosafety issues in proper perspective. We seem to be deluged with risks and risk information, and his approach is clear, concise and elegant. In sum, I believe that environmental health professionals can apply the insights in this series of articles in a way that will help supplant the "command-and-control" mentatlity that has battered so many of our colleagues and public health/environment inspectors, and baffled decision makers in the past two decades. Asst. Prof. R. Steven Konkel, Ph.D., EKU

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference book with questionable publisher support
    This text is one of the most definitive AND USEFUL shelf references for the environmental health sciences. Detailed, accurate, wide-ranging on topics of immediate interest to the practicing sanitarian, engineer or the very interested non-practitioner. Support from the publisher has been poor. For two years after the announcement of the current addendum, the publisher "disavowed knowledge" of an addendum. When published, the addendum had the same ISBN number as the complete text -- creating the unture appearance of a "reduced" price complete addition. Salvato, could for the price of this text, be on a more current update of information contained in some chapters (2-3 year cycle). The scope of this work would justify numerous consulting authors. While it is one of the best shelf references and "learning texts" it could still be improved and be better supported by a publisher that sometimes seems to have insulated itself from the buying public. ...

    Book Description

    • Greater number of solved examples than most competing texts.
    • Good emphasis on practical problems, and 25% new homework problems.
    • Early introduction of Bernoulli Equation.
    • Each example problem is completely solved using a problem statement, detailed solution and often giving a brief discussion of related principles from real life situations. This practical problem solving methodology is used to promote students' reasoning skills.
    • E-Text. Each new copy of the fourth edition includes a free CD-ROM containing the e-Text-the entire print component of the book in searchable PDF format, plus additional material not in the print version.
    • Fluid Mechanics Phenomena brings fluid mechanics to life! A series of 80 short video segments on the CD illustrate various aspects of real-world fluid mechanics. The videos are linked within the e-Text directly to those sections and problems that will most benefit from these illustrations:
      • Many of the segments show how fluid motion relates to familiar devices and everyday experiences.
      • Each segment also clearly indicates the key fluid mechanics topic being demonstrated and provides a description of the content.
    • Review Problems with Complete Solutions. Each chapter in the e-Text provides students with 10-20 review problems that link directly to complete detailed solutions for extra guidance in problem-solving. In addition, the review problems are identified by the basic principle they demonstrate, allowing students easy reference to areas they need to review.
    • Lab Problems. The e-Text contains 30 extended laboratory problems that involve actual experimental data for simple experiments often found in introductory fluid mechanics labs. The data for these problems is provided in Excel format.
    • Key Words and Topics. Each chapter contains a list of key words and topics. Within the e-Text, the key words and topics are linked directly to where those concepts are explained in the chapter. Great for studying-think flashcards!
    • Summary sentences. A brief summary sentence on each page of the text.An effective reference and resource to students, these sentences help students locate discussions of important concepts.Used as a study tool, the summary sentences guide students to key concept that students need to understand and encourage them to read the text rather than relying on worked out examples.

    In my course of Fluid Mechanics at the University of Brasília (UnB) I've been studying this subject through McDonald and Fox's Introduction to Fluid Mechanics and I really think that Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics is the best choice for people who really want to learn the theory . Besides that Mcdonald and Fox's is better in terms of exercises

    The best thing about this book is the in-depth soultions to extra problems found only in the CD. So be sure to ask for the CD that accompanies the book; on top of that you get a solid fluid mechanics book that will support you through your fluid classes. A foundational understanding in fluids will also help in classes like Heat Transfer where most of the information is building on information learned in fluids. Good book, good examples, I like a lot of one of the author's (Okiishi) stuff.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Dont rely only on this book
    If you are cursed with a poor professor and are forced to use the book to teach yourself the material, you will be sorely dissapointed. First of all, the book is extremely wordy and very complicated to understand. You are given a ton of equations when they talk about a topic but you almost always find no use for the majority of them. I find the later chaptersespecially to be all math oriented and I found fewer and fewer real world problems to help study for the exams which had real world questions. In general, I was very dissapointed with the book.

    The study guide that accompanes the book is actually fairly decent and succint if not too short and they sometimes dont show important equations

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for the student of Mechanical Engineering
    This book is excellent for the engineering student. I recommend it for the beginning student of fluid mechanics or for the advanced student wishing to refresh his/her knowledge of fluid mechanics. The collaborative effort by the authors produce a beautifully explained text. The material is clear and concise and the additional software included with the book is of great use for illustrating important concepts.
