From the reviews of the second edition:
"It is nice to see a fine book in print that every fluid dynamics student or researcher would wish to possess, particularly because there are a large number of comparisons between theoretical predictions and experimental data. It is a fine source of all that is relevant in boundary layer theory both historically as well as in terms of contemporary and future fluid dynamic applications. … Overall, this is a must-buy for applied mathematicians as well as for engineers."
