Reviews

"The authors of the book have managed to write book [sic] in a manner where students can learn all the concepts from basic to advance at one-stop location in form of this book. ...I strongly recommend this textbook for aeronautical or aerospace students at either undergraduate or postgraduate level. Aerospace researchers/engineers will also find it useful as a handbook on all basics." --The Aeronautical Journal "The authors of the book have managed to write book in a manner where students can learn all the concepts from basic to advance at one-stop location in form of this book.
