The first volume is aerodynamics in words of one syllable. It is not a book for those who really want to learn aerodynamic theory, but for those who wish to become acquainted with the subject without too much trouble. This book can be understood with no more equipment than a little algebra. There is certainly no harm in making aerodynamics readable and interesting, but, owing to the fact that it docs not deal with theory and covers much that is not amenable to theoretical treatment, the title “ Aerodynamics ” is not a correct one. Perhaps “ Flight Mechanics ” would have been better.
