    I used Fundamentals of Classical Thermodynamics, Van Wylen and Sonntag: back in 1983. I got in touch with Sonntag a few years ago asking him questions about the Second Law and it's Philisophical ramifications.

    I have the 6th edition. I bought it last year, didnt really use it, failed thermo, so now Im back to do it again. I think ill read it this time.

    I used it for my second year thermo course, but it's proven handy as a reference text. I don't have much to compare it to, though.

    I've got the 6th edition on hand. I'd say that it does a reasonable job as an introductory text.

    Zemansky, Devoe, Pitzer all provide deeper insights.
