'It should be quite straightforward to use Physical Fluid Dynamics as a text for advanced undergraduate or graduate courses...[It] is one of those rare books that offers a qualitative advance over what was available previously.' American Journal of Physics on the first edition. From reviews of the first edition: 'reminds one of Prandtl's classic, 'Fuhrer durch die Stroemungslehre'... well suited as a text for introductory courses addressed to engineering students.' Journal of Fluid Mechanics
