"Acquisition of the text is highly recommended for materials science students at advanced undergraduate and postgraduate level. Would I have bought this book if it were available while I was pursuing my undergraduate degree in materials science? Yes; in fact, I extensively used an earlier edition of this text."
– Ash Ahmed, Leeds Metropolitan University, in Times Higher Education, 2008
"This classic textbook is the definitive introduction to the thermodynamic behavior of material systems."
– In Journal of Heat Treatment and Materials, September 2008, Vol. 18, No. 9
"The text is excellently written and is of equal value both to first-time students in thermodynamics of materials as well as to metallurgical and materials engineers seeking to refresh their knowledge . . . This text book has evolved over the past 30 years and has gained a state that permits to recommend it without any restrictions to both students and professionals. I am convinced that it will continue to be one of the most significant titles in this field for many years to come."
– Ewald A. Werner, Professor of Materials Science and Mechanics of Materials, Co-Editor Materials Science and Engineering, Technische Universität, 2008
"The long life of this textbook is as good an evaluation of its quality as any book reviewer’s praise. ...It will remain as a classic for times to come..."
