From the reviews of the third edition:
"This book, primarily oriented towards industrial applications, intends to provide engineers with the necessary background to use and understand commercial fluid dynamics modeling codes or, alternatively, to develop their own. … In summary, this text, which is commendable for its excellent plain English and pedagogic qualities, constitutes an excellent introduction to the world of computational fluid dynamics and will proudly find its place on the shelf besides more classical reference textbooks." (Michael Crucifix, Physicalia, Vol. 25 (2), 2003)
"In reviewer’s opinion, the book is a mixture of surveys and detailed discussions, the latter reflecting the experience of the authors. Thus the book is valuable for the beginners and also for the specialists." (Willi Schönauer, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 998, 2002)
"In its 3rd revised and extended edition the book offers an overview of the techniques used to solve problems in fluid mechanics on computers and describes in detail those most often used in practice. … The book also contains a great deal of practical advice for code developers and users, it is designed to be equally useful to beginners and experts. … A full-feature user-friendly demo-version of a commercial CFD software has been added … ." (ETDE Energy Database, January, 2002)

The loss of Professor Ferziger was definitely to the detriment of the CFD field, but a lot of this book is the authors referencing their own work (this bugs the crap out of me). No offense, but their contributions thus far are not as important as they would have you believe by reading this book; they are not the only people to have papers in subjects that run the gamut of CFD topics. Speaking of referencing papers, the authors treatment of basic topics (numerical analysis, FDM/FVM, FEM, time integration methods) is very much lacking, while more "high brow" topics like turbulence and multiphase flows have a reference every other sentence. I found the treatment of linear equation solvers and general NS-equations solutions to be very good. The turbulence chapter was also very clear. It was good to see efficiency and error discussed in the context of actually solving problems, but alas, their treatment did not really do this very important area much justice.
I don't know what book is good for learning CFD. If you were completely new to the field, I suppose this would be a reasonable place to start, but once again, I don't think the text is THAT great.
