In his 1961 review of the first edition of BSL's Transport Phenomena, John Butt described the book as ԯne of the most important texts to appear in the field of chemical engineering in many yearsԮ Clearly his assessment is still true 50 years later! Luckily BSL was written at a time when the digital computer was in its infancy and the authors had no choice but to focus on problems that were amenable to mathematical, rather than numerical, analysis. This choice demanded the student combine intuition, dimensional analysis, and fairly elementary mathematical techniques to develop qualitative understanding of the basic physics of a problem.
