    I'm unaware of such book. Traditional texts are Lamarsh, Henry, and Duderstadt. Older teachers tend to emphasize analytical solutions and to some extent numerical schemes. Younger teachers focus more on implementation of numerical methods and code development.

    Who are you teaching this to? You need to clearly specify your audience/students and their expected level of knowledge.

    I loved Glasstone and Sessonske "Nuclear Reactor Engineering"
    this edition


    it was practical with an excellent section on instrumentation that is not in my later edition.
