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.

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

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.

Book is a little beat up around the edges, but the pages are unmarked and it does what it needs to do.

This book requires prerequisites before you understand what it is talking about; you can't jump into it without having some previous experience with thermo/statics/mechanics.

That said, this is a great book. Good explanations, wonderfull example problems and great graphics.

Yes it leaves some equations long. This is so they apply in more instances. If you have ever heard of making assumptions before you attempt to solve a problem, you will notice that many of these equations will simplify down quite a bit.

Ignore the bad reviews, this is a great book!

This book is very difficult to follow; the explanations are superficial or lacking. There are better books to learn Fluid Mechanics from, such as Granger (affordable) or Cengel.
