Editorial Reviews

``Every practicing chemical engineer working in or for the process industries, including those who specialize in fractionation and, most certainly, those who do not, should find "Distillation Design" invaluable. ...The content is so totally complete and the presentation is so refreshingly down-to-earth, this book, in many ways, is the best to come along in more than a generation. ...The discussion of new products is astonishingly comprehensive.''
