“...chemical engineers working on smaller-volume products made by batch/semibatch processes should have this encyclopedic volume on their bookshelves alongside Perry’s Chemical Engineer’s Handbook...an extremely useful summary of rules of thumb is given”
— Organic Process Research and Development Journal 2005
“This is an excellent book that can serve as the text for an undergraduate course in plant design. It will also be very useful as a sourcebook for process-design engineers that work for smaller companies that do not have their own process equipment design standards. The new authors have done an outstanding job in updating and expanding the original book by Professor Walas”
