Beginning with a straightforward theoretical overview, this book comprises an exhaustive collection of specific examples of heat flow in a variety of geometries with almost every conceivable set of boundary conditions. As a refresher and reference this book is in a class all its own. It is an example of what a good text can be in a sometimes difficult subject.
My interest was in determining ground resistance for a GHX-design project . From the information in this reference, I was able to reproduce 2 figures from a Kavanaugh & Rafferty reference, about ground resistance. The K&R figures were correct, but the Carslaw & Jaeger reference allowed me to determine my own independent comparison.

The Carslaw & Jaeger reference is the most comprehensive reference that I have seen yet. There is interesting informaion about many other heat-transfer topics. I would have rated it higher, but the equation symbols and lack of a consistent glossary, made it difficult for me to follow. If you understand that I have an MSE(ME) degree, and over 20 years of engineering experience, this is not a trivial comment.
This classic should be on every science and engineering bookshelf. The wealth of elegant analytical solutions is an invaluable resource for analysis as well as for informing numerical solutions.
