    1. Callen does a pretty good job of putting together a consistent theory of thermodynamics from first principles. My difficulty with thermodynamics is often that they tend to pull results out of nowhere, either based on problems I didn't do or assumed knowledge of some obscure combinations of partial derivatives and identities. Callen however does a pretty good job of motivating the development of the material with comprehensive reasoning. I will say this though, stay away from the 1st addition, it [...]

    2. LOVED this book. Had I continued in science, I would have wanted this to be a big part of my field (as indeed it was in graduate school). Clear without being simplistic. A valuable reference for the working chemist and engineer.

    3. The book's biggest pitfall is the horrible index. Because of this it's hard to refer to old topics or use as a quick reference.

    4. Callen waxes philosophical on the most fundamental subset of physics. Chose this over the course text for an undergrad thermodynamics course and glad I did.

    5. A beautifully-written book. Not a reference, but a rare scientific text to learn from.
