Review quote

By R. Darby, Texas A&M University Roberge's weighty tome is designed as a guide for the practicing engineer. The level of presentation is largely qualitative and descriptive, with the more qualitative subjects relegated to the appendixes (e.g., electrochemistry basics, thermodynamics, and E-pH diagrams, etc.). Eleven chapters and seven appendixes are included...Liberal use is made of pictures, tables diagrams, etc. and an extensive list of references is given at the end of each chapter. The book can be read by those with little or no previous background in the subject area and contains a liberal amount of "practical" information. Upper-division undergraduates; professionals; two-year technical program students. Choice 20000501
