The book is not for the timid. Some sections are positively heavy going; the author backs up the pretty pictures with just enough theory and math. All the illustations were drawn, photographed or scanned by him and they are superb. His care in devising, setting up and executing them is very apparent. Text is about equally divided between body and captions and is concise, clear and easy to read. At the end of each chapter are copious endnotes and right at the end a seven page bibliography for further reading.
I could not put the book down and finished it in a sitting, and have since gone back to re-read several sections. I can see that I will repeat this often in future. The book will definitely have several reprints or editions and one hopes that the author will then get rid of the unnecessary typographical errors. One also hopes that he will come to grips with the spelling of words like 'asymmetrical' and will learn the difference between 'centripetal' and 'centrifugal'.
