The book repeats the old-fashioned equivalence of entropy to disorder, in spite of the fact that while the second law (in the boltzmann formulation) is suggestive of a trend toward disorder, the latter is a complicated concept that is not fully encapsulated by entropy. A brief introduction to thermodynamics • entropy is a measure of the amount of disorder in a system concepts .
Entropy is a crucial microscopic concept for describing the thermodynamics of systems of molecules, and the assignment of entropy to macroscopic objects like bricks is of no apparent practical value except as an introductory visualization.
