Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Resource Principle and Prevention of Corrosion is an excellent book for anyone (tech/engineer) who deals with corrosion and corrosion issues. Jones, provides very good coverage of the major facets of corrosion and helps the reader to better understand the problems and causes of different topics related to corrosion. As a beginning Corrosion Engineer I found this to be a managable read and will be a valuable reference for years to come.
