Let’s see the book collections

Here’s my basement shelf. The rest of it is scattered around the house and work van.

Let’s see some literature collections. Hoping to steal some book titles :)

    Mike,
    I like it. You made me realize that I have a few checked out that I need to get back. I found a very eager controls student who has some overdue books.

    Judging by what you have, I think you would like Thermal Comfort and Cameron Hydraulic Data. Rust is also a fun one.

    What is your favorite refrigeration book? I don't really want to get into that business, just would like a better understanding of what's what. I book on theory and general troubleshooting would be nice.

    Thanks,
    Carl

    Zman, I just added both of those books to my Amazon list. I'll pick them up soon.

    I have two favorite AC/Refrigeration books. The first is the Modern AC and Refrigeration text book. I learned a ton from it.

    My next favorite one is called Commercial Refrigeration by **** Wirz. He used to be the head of the AC department at a local community college here in VA. Great book.

    This is just my trade book shelf. I have larger shelves with my other hobby - physics and space. I think books written by astronauts are my favorite. Favorite book of all time is still Chris Hadfield's, "An Astronauts Guide to Life on Earth."

    I have Dan Holohan to blame for my obsession with books. I read The Lost Art and it blew me away. I had no idea how much you could learn from simply reading a book.

    I'm disappointed Carl. Only 1 chess book (it's not a bad one)?

    There was an error rendering this rich post.

    @Zman,

    If your looking for something good for refrigeration basics go to the Emerson site and look for "Copeland Refrigeration Handbook" you can download it for free. I have read and re read this for years easy to read has a ton of info

    Small library and totally influenced by Dan Holohan.

    The "We Got Steam Heat!" copies I give away to my steam clients which are very few.

    The only chess book I have is "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" about David Bronstein, the chess master, written by my cousin.

    I just realized my John Siegenthaler "Modern Hydronic Heating" edition is missing. I just may have to buy another one unless I can remember who I loaned it to.
