It goes without saying that people never enjoy corrosion. The corrosion is commonly perceived as a very nasty phenomena with which people have to cope. The present comprehensive volume by Alec Groysman is aimed to clearly explained the corrosion to everybody and the author has made his best to present the explanation in a maximum lucid and interesting way. The content of the volume will be easily understandable even for the beginners and young engineers. However, the problem of corrosion has been addressed quite deeply and it means that the book will be of great professional interest even for the practicing engineers and scientists in this field. The author has used a fresh style of writing and explanation and covered such the important topics as oxygen solubility in water, reversible/irreversible potential, practical monitoring and control of pollution, iron and steel oxidation, humanitarian aspects and many others. The text part of the volume has been supplemented with numerous practical real-life examples of different corrosion phenomena. The corrosion has been explained in six big chapters starting from the corrosion mechanisms and its parameters, through the corrosion phenomena and types of corrosion. The publication would be recommended to all people willing to get a deeper insight in the corrosion types, associated mechanisms and preventative measures.
