Excellent book...... Must for all the budding petroleum engineers.

For the price, this is as good as it gets. It has quite a few definitions, and is rather helpful, especially when writing technical papers. If, however, you're working with older wells, circa 1950, you should get The petroleum dictionary by Lalia Boone since terms change through time. It has some pictures as well. The Illustrated petroleum reference dictionary edited by Robert D. Langenkamp is better, but costs an arm and a leg.
