The material in this book is presented in a clear, easily understandable language. Every topic is supplied with specific examples, that help to demonstrate certain elements of the theory. ...having this book is a must for every reservoir engineer expecially for those who have to make decisions as to what simulating software to choose for a particular reservoir and situation. - Journal of Petroleum Science and Engineering
