Choice Review

A significant revision of the first edition (CH, Apr '77) of this handbook. In addition to incorporating SI units along with English units, many sections have been expanded and new material has been added. The book is written by 72 contributors, all with industrial backgrounds. Consequently, the book covers an extremely wide range of material about virtually every type of pump and every aspect of pump operation, primarily from an applied perspective. Despite the range and variety of material, the book is surprisingly uniform in format and level of presentation, and is quite readable. The new material included in this edition has been incorporated within existing chapters, so that the chapter titles remain unchanged; however, addition of new material has resulted in a significant improvement in scope, with the result that virtually all aspects of pump design, performance, and application have been included. Recommended as a reference for any technical or engineering collection serving users concerned with the practical aspects of fluid flow.-R. Darby, Texas A&M University
