About the Author
Jack D. Mattingly received his B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame, and his Ph.D. in Aeronautics and Astronautics at the University of Washington. While studying for his doctorate under Gordon C. Oates, he pioneered research in the mixing of coannular swirling flows and developed a major new test facility. During his 40 years of experience in analysis and design of propulsion and thermodynamic systems, he has written two engineering textbooks, developed aerothermodynamic cycle analysis models, and created engineering software for air-breathing propulsion systems. Dr. Mattingly was previously at the Aero Propulsion Laboratory at Wright-Patterson AFB where he directed exploratory and advanced development programs aimed at improving the performance, reliability, and durability of gas turbine engine components. He retired from active duty with the U.S. Air Force in 1989 and joined the faculty of Seattle University. In 2000 he retired from Seattle University as Professor Emeritus in Mechanical Engineering to dedicate his efforts to writing this textbook and a new edition of Aircraft Engine Design, teaching short courses, and consulting. Dr. Mattingly has more than 35 years of experience in Engineering Education, earlier as a senior member of the Department of Aeronautics at the United States Air Force Academy, where he established a top undergraduate propulsion program. In addition, he has taught and done research in propulsion and thermal energy systems at the Air Force Institute of Technology, University of Washington, University of Notre Dame, University of Wisconsin, and IBM Corp. He was also founder of the AIAA/Air Breathing Propulsion Team Aircraft Engine Design Competition for undergraduate students. Among his many distinguished teaching awards is Outstanding Educator for 1992 from Seattle University. Having published more than 25 technical papers, articles, and textbooks in his field, Dr. Mattingly authored Elements of Gas Turbine Propulsion (1995) and was co-author of Aircraft Engine Design, Second Edition (2002), an unprecedented conceptual design textbook for air breathing engines that won the 2005 AIAA Summerfield Book Award.

Edit: It get's even worse. Numerous typos make the questions and solutions impossible to understand, and the book feels the need to jump randomly from SI to English units, adding to even more confusion. 0 stars if possible. A very sloppy book from AIAA. Stick to Anderson for any of your aerospace needs.
