This book is written by very accomplished aeronautical industry/academic professionals. Do you want their insights? Or, do you want their formulae?
Many want the formulae, but I wanted the insights. And that is exactly what this book provides.
If you are looking for a fresh, experienced, and non-dogmatic view of the principles of flight then this is the book for you.
You'll get it as soon as you get through about 20 pages. This isn't your sad physics teacher's regurgitation text on flight. It is real and begins to point light on lift and aerodynamics for those of a more philosophically curious nature.
Simple, straight-forward, and with the gravity of experience. Excellent.
This is a book I strongly suggest you!!!
Reading it on a Paper White Kindle of course, made some of the illustrations a little difficult to make out, which is understandable.
