This does not detract from the value of the revision, and I am sure that anyone who has found the original useful would find the second edition well worth buying. Essentially a textbook on the design of fluidized beds for gas-solid reactions, it will be of use to the designer who is prepared to learn about fluidization, as well as students of the subject and lecturers: Other applications that require the same principles are included in the overall scheme.
Two examples are the design of dryers, which requires heat and mass transfer but without reaction, and pneumatic conveying, which is used to transport solids to and from reactors. Topics that do not appear are liquid fluidization, erosion and abrasion. The omission of the latter is surprising in that it has been a major problem for fluidized coal combustion, the development of which is given by the authors as a reason for producing a new edition. The talents and experience of both authors combine well in the book.

There is a heavy bias towards Japanese processes in a comprehensive coverage. The choice of examples has been fully revised from the first edition with the addition of modern applications and the removal of some promising ideas that never fully caught on.
The academic background of Levenspiel shows in the pedagogical approach of the book. The fludization is clear and there are many useful worked examples. Perhaps the best justification for describing this edition as an essentially new book lies in the presentation. The diagrams are drawn more boldly and modern devices, such as shaded boxes, boxed equations and headings in the margin, are used.
Fluidization Engineering (Second Edition)
The practice of using a wide left-hand ounii to accommodate occasional headings and a narrow right-hand margin means that the right-hand page is much more easily read than the fluidiaation one, where the end of the line disappears into the fold in the spine. Perhaps this should be counted as an advantage in that half the pages are easily read! The use of margins is not consistent between text and diagrams and this gives a lop-sided feel, particularly when there are no marginal headings on a page with both text and figures.
Overall, this is a well presented book, which will be of value to both students and designers who desire a deeper understanding of fluidized bed reactors and their applications.
I am sure it is one that I will be referring to many times in the future.
