1.) Book jacket says it covers steam systems. The chapter on steam was removed after the 2nd edition. The editor/publisher doesn't even know or care what is inside this book.
2.) Numerous typos and formatting problems.
3.) Units are often missing or wrong
4.) Many in text references to tables and figures are wrong or the figure is missing.
5.) Book calls 90 degree bends ¾ bends (p. 2.26). I really hope this was a poor editing job and not what the author really thinks.
6.) Many, many equations are wrong. Imagine a computer program that randomly assigns mathematical operators and you wouldn't be far off. My favorite was Pressure=Force + Area (p. 15.9).
7.) There is a lot of incorrect table data. For example, value of btu/gal of propane is off by a factor of 10 in Table 13.2.
8.) Description of the pressure vacuum breaker (p. 9.51&2) gets 2/3 of the salient features wrong. The relevant figure shown is not even a PVB.
I think people who gave this book a higher review just use it for occasional reference and haven't read it all the way through. I would be very cautious about using any information from this book.
As a side note, this book was originally $150. I bought it used for half that, and it is currently $30 new. That is telling.
