Super Operator July 30, 2019
Reviewer: Paul J. Retel from Chesapeake, VA  
Throughout this book, Mr. Brooks stresses the importance of both having an in-depth understanding of how your plant operates and also troubleshooting from a holistic, or systems, perspective.  This emphasis is often missing in other operator training resources.  He also discusses the importance of taking time to understand how each system of the plant affects the others so that when the plant is out of alignment, the solution does not detrimentally affect other systems.  He has practical tips on issues such as receiving chemical shipments correctly, the importance of accurate operating logs, and regulatory issues.  This book is a great resource for new operators desiring to round out individual topics they may have learned in the classroom and on the job.  Mr. Brooks has a practical approach to all of the issues discussed in the book, and he clearly enjoys sharing his knowledge.
