Format:Hardcover
I enjoyed reading this book as a more intermediate industrial Mechanic, but for that price I expected a book with glossy pictures. I feel the book was over priced for a bunch of pages with drawings. Just a few black and white pics of equipment, and lots of complicated other stuff. The best pic was the cover. To really teach somebody this field you need to be a lot more visual.
I wouldn't recommend this book to a beginner. It would be a bit frustrating. But for someone who just wants a reference book with lots of useful information I think this book is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars The book for all refrigeration system designers June 4 2000
Format:Hardcover
I have covered this book in length-no other book or handbook comes close in terms of simplicity of it's explaination. The latest ASHRAE Refrigeration Handbook is a good reference to have when using this book as there are cross references.Value for money and looking forward to the next book that would be specific on Ammonia Refrigeration Systems design.

5.0 out of 5 stars Will Stoecker Sept. 1 2012
By Kherson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Not only having used this book from almost day one in my career in the ammonia refrigeration field as well as having had the opportunity to work and learn from him in a week long course presented by the good folks from Kansas State University, allows me to say this to one and all, you NEED this book. There is so much excellent material that is covered in this book that is not available anywhere else. Stoecker was the leading expert on ammonia refrigeration during his lifetime. All I can say is thank you Will, from the bottom of my heart...

4.0 out of 5 stars Industrial refrigeration handbook Jan. 27 2011
By Maximus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was very glad to see the examples in the book were in SI units since I was not born in 1800's. If you are novice at the subject the explanation & examples are very good to learn from scratch. Otherwise very handy as a reference book with industry related examples. If you study this book you will be a smart as white rat.
