I have a lot of respect for Mr. Nye. He has done an excellent job making science entertaining. So, I was surprised that in the first chapter where he explains how airplanes fly, he uses the Bernoulli principle as the primary explaination. There are a lot of subtleties in how airplanes fly and Bernoulli is certainly one of them - but the primary explanation has more to do with Newton than Bernoulli. [...]
I'm particularly surprised that Mr. Nye would use this simplistic (and mostly wrong) explanation as he is an ex-Boeing engineer and should know better! If this chapter is representative of the rest of the book, then I'm disinclined to purchase or recommend it.
