VERY wordy, the pages aren't very large, but the book is thick. It would be much better if it had the standard text book dimensions. Minimal visuals. It does have a lot of information but is difficult to understand. Knowing what i know now, I wouldn't buy it.

Must own book!


Great book - easy reading. Packed with valuable engineering! I recommend this for all water treatment plant operators. Buy it now!
