This book begins with primary concepts of atomic and molecular structure and of how atoms, molecules and bulk matter store and exchange energy. In the next stage, the macroscopic properties of energy and entropy, and of the constitutive properties of heat capacities are examined. From these, the concept of thermodynamic efficiency is developed. Then the notions of thermodynamic potentials and availability are introduced. With this set of concepts, the analysis of efficient energy use is presented.

Review:

"Here is a writer with enthusiasm for thermodynamics ... this is an interesting, useful and a reasonably priced introduction to what we know about energy and I am glad to recommend it to all newcomers to the subject." -- P T Landsberg, Contemporary Physics
