The book seems like it comes with a lot of information but it lacks the simplification of equation. Also some variables are used but assumed that the student has memorized them or has seen them before. I don't think this is a good book for courses in fluid mechanics, I think there are better options.

This book needs more explanations for the worked-out examples and better clarifications for the sections. Plus, while having a lot of practice problems is good, this book has way too many--200 for some chapters! And they need to be grouped better for students in classes that don't cover every section of each chapter.

Not the greatest at explaining the topics with clarity, however, the treatment is thorough enough. If one is seeking a personal reference then it may be better suited for those with an advanced understanding.

I do not recommend this book; it is very poorly written and hard to follow.
It is really impossible to learn from it.

The book will serve well as a text book for basic fluid mechanics. It does an extremely good job explaining concepts and has a lot of interesting practice problems

One of the best out there I rented it but decided that I need this in my collection so I purchased it. Can be very mathematical but the content is perfectly organized for a reader with limited knowledge in the subject.

The examples worked out in the book provide excellent work out of steps to solve the problem. The background theory is clearly explained. I find this book as a great supplement to the lecture I receive in class.
