Short and very sweetReviewed in Canada on 11 November 2019
Missing a discussion on tropical design, but otherwise a very nice hour's read.
Required TextbookReviewed in Canada on 22 January 2019
Fast enough. Poke-sized book. Smaller and thinner than I expected, very handy.
Every HVAC engineer must read it.Reviewed in Germany on 2 January 2019
This is a really valuable book. I specifically like the chapter about the circulation of people in a turkish bath and their thermal adventures through the spaces.
Very informativeReviewed in the United States on 18 November 2019
