Well layed out and completely covers basics of HVAC.
By Ken Fishback
This book is layed out well and completely covers the basics of HVAC. Any person who has used NAVEDTRA Manuals will find this to be both similar in lay-out and comprehensity of subject. It is inexpensive for the depth of knowledge contained. For the price, I don’t worry that it may get wear and tear as I carry it around in my service van. You may be interested in Modern Refrigeration and Air Conditioning (Althouse, Turnquist, and Bracciano/ 18th Edition) the ultimate inclusive textbook as used in trade schools and colleges. It is relatively expensive but worth the investment for a career person. I have both.

Basic but inexpensive book
As someone above pointed out, this is a very basic book. The theory in it is ridiculously oversimplified and the description of many working and diagnostic procedures lacks detail. On the other hand, it is not very expensive compare to other books on the subject.
