The book is especially useful for reference, as it explains the derivations and many forms of complex equations such as the continuity equation. Furthermore, there are lots of examples of real-world design situations and historical backgrounds.

Overall, one of the best books I have used in my undergraduate aerospace engineering curriculum.

Reading the book and working through the problems gives a firm grounding in the use of the Geometric Algebra and teaches classical mechanics besides. I could easily recommend this book as a physics textbook on its merits in that area alone.

It is at the level of advanced text suitable for researchers.

It goes beyond the classical irreversible theory

of Onzager and others, by introducing closed equations

for higher order fluxes. The equations are more complicated

than the ones assuming local equilibrium but the complexity

is necessary in order to capture the essential physics.

It has an introduction to local equilibrium assumptions, as well as, to the rational extented thermodynamics methods.

There are easy going chapters on kinetic theory foundations

(even relativistic one).

The more general framework of generalized hydrodynamics

has its own chapter.

There are special chapters on applications of the abstract

theory as for example polymer fluids

The book is clear and will help even students (although at a graduate level). The mathematical depth is accesible throughout the text.

Overall the book makes a very nice study. I would recommend it to the curriculum of every Physics Dept. I hope that many dept administrators will realize that with today's policies of leaving

outside the physics education large chunks of classical physics,

but including applications to biology and astronomy (which should be done in the respective depts) the concept of PHYSICS as a BASIC science has WEAKEND considerably. It is time for a policy

reversal. Books like this can show the way and congratulations

to SPRINGER for publishing them.
