Aerospace Engineering Books

The list author says: "Below is a list of Aerospace Engineering textbooks I have used most throughout my college career. I try to provide a review of each book from my perspective (average student). I plan to add more as I go along."
Introduction to Flight
Introduction to Flight
"Hands down, the best introductory book for aerospace engineering.  The author makes every topic interesting (hard to do with, say, stability) and provides some history behind each topic.  Anderson is, by far, one of the best authors in the subject."
Engineering Mathematics
Engineering Mathematics
"THE reference textbook for engineering math.  The Kreyszig book is also good but is also at a much higher price point.  This book (along with its companion, "Advanced Engineering Mathematics") includes step-by-step sections on almost every imaginable math topic in engineering."
Fundamentals of Thermodynamics
Fundamentals of Thermodynamics
"I really don't have any other books to compare this one to.  I guess that speaks to the quality of this book."
Introduction to Heat Transfer
Introduction to Heat Transfer
"Good book on the subject. It contains many examples and is much more readable than the comparable Holman book."
Introduction to Aircraft Flight Dynamics (Aiaa Education Series)
Introduction to Aircraft Flight Dynamics (Aiaa Education Series)
"A great overall book on stability and control.  The text starts off with the basics and then gradually moves on to more intensive topics.  Plenty of examples are shown throughout the text.  Also, the book includes a review on linear algebra that is better than most math texts."
Gas Dynamics (3rd Edition)
Gas Dynamics (3rd Edition)
"Great book - easy to read and contains numerous examples.  The author's writing style is similar to Anderson who, by the way, writes a good book on the subject."
Modern Compressible Flow: With Historical Perspective
Modern Compressible Flow: With Historical Perspective
"An Anderson book.  No need to say more. :)"
Vector Mechanics for Engineers: Statics w/CD-ROM
Vector Mechanics for Engineers: Statics w/CD-ROM
"A good place to start for statics and structures.  Honestly, most intro textbooks I've read on the subject are more or less the same."
Engineering Mechanics  , Dynamics (Volume 2)
Engineering Mechanics , Dynamics (Volume 2)
"Not a bad book.  The topic can be a little daunting at first but I think this book does a good job explaining the subject.  The book includes many step-by-step examples."
Materials Science and Engineering: An Introduction
Materials Science and Engineering: An Introduction
"This book is exactly what is says - an introduction.  It's a great place to start on the topic but won't help you much as you get into more advanced aerospace courses.  The plentiful examples and material tables in the back are a big plus."
Elasticity: Tensor, Dyadic, and Engineering Approaches (Dover Civil and Mechanical Engineering)
Elasticity: Tensor, Dyadic, and Engineering Approaches (Dover Civil and Mechanical Engineering)
"This little $15 book did a better job explaining elasticity than several $100 textbooks.  My only complaint is there are very few worked examples."
Fundamentals of Aircraft Structural Analysis
Fundamentals of Aircraft Structural Analysis
"Good book.  As far as aircraft structures goes, this book along with the Chou / Pagano Elasticity book will get you up to speed."
Aircraft Structures for Engineering Students, Third Edition
Aircraft Structures for Engineering Students, Third Edition
"A so-so book.  The author explains topics fairly well however, he's hard to follow at times.  Also, the book is poorly organized."
Mechanics of Aircraft Structures
Mechanics of Aircraft Structures
"A HUMONGOUS WASTE OF MONEY!  Probably one of the most poorly written textbooks I've ever read.  I only added this so you know what NOT to buy."
