"Bruce Fegley has scripted a comprehensive text in classical phenomenological thermodynamicsâ¦The greatest strength of this volume is its attention to the needs of the student. I hope its greatest value will be in drawing a new generation to apply classical thermodynamics in the geosciences with intellectual rigor."--Meteoritics & Planetary Science, 48, 2013
"This book covers thermodynamics from a different angle. Fegleyâ¦puts a much stronger emphasis on the effects of pressure or the equilibrium between materials as they occur in the geological or planetary sciencesâ¦this focus is demonstrated in the examples and problems discussed in each of the 12 chapters."--CHOICE April 2013
