This is an invaluable resource if your study/work is anywhere in the fields of high temperature or high speed gas dynamics. It is a graduate level text that assumes a grasp of classical thermodynamics. Gives a solid foundation in the areas of statistical thermodynamics and kinetic theory for use in equilibrium and non-equilibrium flow analysis. John D. Anderson references this book in several of his own (if you know who John Anderson is, you know that in itself is a compliment). A large part of the kinetic theory in Anderson's Hypersonic and High-Temperature Gas Dynamics, Second Edition (Aiaa Education Series) is based on this work by Vincenti and Kreuger.
My review would be 5 stars if it weren't for the binding. The binding for this edition is cheap and stiff, and is already falling apart from light use. I plan to use this book for a long time, so I am actually looking into the possibility of having it rebound. I sincerely wish I could have gotten hold of an older edition that was well cared for. My boss used this as a textbook when he was getting his master's degree, and has held on to his copy... still in great shape. It stays open to the page you open it to when you set it down, and is still totally intact even after years of heavy use. I've had mine for about 2 months, and the spine is already tearing because I have to manhandle it to make it stay open.

Excellent Text/Terrible Binding

poor printing quality

The printing of this book is really poor. It looks like the pages were printed by an ink jet printer from the mid 90's. The text is grainy and there is a lot of bleed-through from the back side of the page making the reading experience tiring. The hardcover binding is nice though.
very good book for gas dynamics.

very good book for gas dynamics and the quality of the book is really very good.
Good quality. Met the descripyion more or less

I found it is very easy to follow. So this is a good book for beginners! Besides this book is very classic, though it's old.
