"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."
