Authors: Jones, Robert Lindell 
Book Description:
Often, thermodynamics textbooks suffer because the authors overlook certain points. These points, while trivial to experts, tend to confuse students. Though this book is not intended as a textbook, its tutorial aim will help students better understand the basic concepts of thermodynamics. The author writes from the perspective that as long as one knows the terms and reasoning behind a scientific concept, the concept itself becomes easy. This book contains sections discussing the development of thermodynamics, underlying math principles, and rudimentary laws.
