  4. Martin BailynA Survey of Thermodynamics, AIP (1994). This 657-page work is both a reference and a textbook. The American Journal of Physics has said that it is a "marvelous resource for any teacher of thermal physics." The book is particularly notable for its thoroughness; it includes, for example, a chapter discussing thermodynamics within the context of special relativity.
