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.

This book is absolutely the best book I have owned on the subject. I love the simplicity of the text, clarity of the illustrations, and above all the fact that it covered all the necessary areas on the subject. I strongly recommend it to anyone interested in expanding their knowledge on wind energy.

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.
