"It is very nicely written with a presentation style that engineers in industry will appreciate. Most of the mathematics involved is very straightforward and the results are presented in a very clear manner. This is a text that should be very useful to those working on unmanned aerial vehicles and may even be of interest to those working on unmanned land or marine vehicles."--Applied Control Technology Consortium
From the Back Cover
"This book presents a unique and broad introduction to the necessary background, tools, and methods to design guidance, navigation, and control systems for unmanned air vehicles. Written with confidence and authority by leading researchers in the field, this effectively organized book provides an excellent reference for all those interested in this subject."--Emilio Frazzoli, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
"Presenting aircraft dynamics to nonaerospace students, this book provides a clear description and explanation for the design of navigation, guidance, and control algorithms for small to miniature unmanned aircraft systems."--Eric W. Frew, University of Colorado, Boulder

Background knowledge in differential equations, dynamic systems, Matlab, and Simulink is required if you want to learn this stuff effectively.
The title might be misleading.
The book should be called "Automatic flight control of Small Unmanned Aircraft".
The book doesn't cover any other aspects of UAV design except the flight control.
The text is easy to read despite the math.
Good book, clean explanations.
What I like most is the MATLAB implementations accompanying the book, which helps enforcing the knowledge and improving simulation skills. However, there are some typos that should be corrected in subsequent editions.
