I have been using this book for 5 years, after a recommendation of a petroleum engineer friend. I'm not a chemical engineer, but the book suits me very well, it written is a style suitable for common oil men and engineers alike. I find it a great reference source.

About the author (1991)

On October 8, 1977, Richard Thompson and Margaret Spicer were married in the small town of New Totem on the western edge of the Vast Northern Prairie. The next day they hitched a ride to Prince George on Cindy-Lou Pratt's tour bus. They've been there ever since. Richard now earns his living creating and telling tales?--short ones and tall ones.
