From the reviews:

"The writing style is quintessential Truesdellania: purely mathematical, breathtaking, irrepressible, irreverent, uncompromising, taking no prisoners... The book is filled with historical nuggets... Its pure, exact mathematics will baptize, enlighten and exhilarate." (Applied Mechanics Review)

"The authors have backgrounds which are ideally suited for writing this book. The late C. Truesdell is well known for his monumental treatises on continuum thermomechanics. K. R. Rajagopal has made many important contributions to the mechanics of continua in general, and to nonlinear fluids in particular. They have produced a compact, moderately general book which encompasses many fluid models of current interest. ... This is an excellent book which is highly recommended to students and researchers in fluid mechanics." (Mathematical Reviews)
