The Last Summer by Andree Michaud Read the opening extract of the brand new Andree Michaud book before its publication on 25/01/2018

Synopsis

A to Z of Thermodynamics by Pierre (Professor, Laboratoire de Metallurgie Physique, University de Lille) Perrot

The title is a perfect description. Arranged alphabetically this book explains the words and phrases that crop up in thermodynamics. The author does this without resorting to pages of mathematics and algebra: the author's main aim is to explain and clarify the jargon and concepts. Thermodynamics is often difficult and confusing for students. The author knows this after 20 years of teaching and does something about it with this dictionary.

Reviews

...those of us who understand the subject fairly well will find the book valuable for reference.
