rigorous

This book cannot be read overnight. The author does not compromise in starting from the basics and the rigour.The concept of entropy very abstract and inexplicably everywhere is explained beautifully. I started appreciating the book when i started analyzing each graph ( A lot of the explanation is graphical). Well worth if you have the time and inclination to pore overit. But keep a more EXAM FRIENDLY book with you (-:

Book to build concept, not for crammers..

This book is a very good book to build concept for begineers. It has topics described in such a way that you may consume time to understand the topic, but your understanding will be crystal clear.
this book is a must for students appearing for GATE or PSUs or Semesters as the author stressed more on Concept building.

Good Book But

The level is certainly high and only the intermediate learners who are pretty strong with the basic concepts will find this book easy ... If you are new to thermodynamics Start with RK RAJPUT.. Its language is very simple and the concepts are explained well..

Good Read.

The book is a nice read.But at times very brief explanations have been provided which makes it difficult for an average student to follow.The flow of theory is good and the solved examples are very helpful in grasping the subject matter.
