Review:

"This book presents basic concepts in nuclear energy in crisp and elegant fashion. Prof. Murray has done an excellent job with this fifth edition."
-Shripad T. Revankar, Purdue University

This book is for beginners, and it is especially useful for the engineer or scientist who has no previous knowledge of nuclear energy but who wishes to get up to speed and become familiar with the general problems.

This is a fine book and will, I believe, help to show students that nuclear engineering, and its associated fields, are worthwhile areas in which to plan a career.
-M.M.R Williams, Emeritus Professor of Nuclear Engineering, University of London

especially impressed with the inclusion of computer problems
