5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive! June 6, 2007
Format:Hardcover
This book helped me ace my mechanical engineering senior design project every step of the way. The material is easy to grasp for anyone with a basic background in math/science; and learning about how this stuff works is fascinating! The chapter on aerodynamics alone kept me writing computer codes for months. The author's writing style is modern and easy to follow.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice, practical introduction to the field February 7, 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I've just started this book. It's for a Wind Energy Systems course. So far, it has been a very straight-forward and practical introduction into the field of wind energy. While it is very easy to understand and very practical, it's also been quite thorough in explaining the concepts. Overall, I anticipate this to be a great book; certainly one of the "keepers" you come across every now and then.
