Roger Newnham, C. Eng, FIMech E., Eur. Ing. 
"Direct-Fired Heaters is an extremely comprehensive volume covering everything from Acronyms to Zink Coatings. This is not surprising, since Roger Newnham is one of the most well-rounded experts in the field. This book will provide valuable guidance to new as well as experienced owners and operators of fired heaters."

"I've been waiting a long time for this 'whole package' book about fired heaters. The content, structure, and style are dedicated to easy understanding of the design, operation, and maintenance of a fired heater. The author is an expert and the creator of the fired heater for the petroleum industry. I highly recommend it for workers engaged with the fired heater. It is a must-have for refineries."

"Direct-Fired Heaters is an excellent book for engineers, operators, and  managers who want to increase their knowledge of process fired heaters. The quality of the book and its strengths are clearly evident based on the author's extensive experience. I feel it is also an excellent source of technical information for experienced engineers (i.e., fired equipment engineers), especially in the sections around design. This book is a must for your technical bookshelf. As a fired-equipment expert, I hope there are more books like this to come."
