...a good long-term investment.
...a thoroughly enjoyable addition to my library and I would quickly recommend it to anyone with an interest in rheology or fluid mechanics in general.
Applied Mechanics Review
...is recommended not only as a teaching tool but also for applied rheologists who are interested in the relevance of viscoelasticity.
... This is a book that I would highly recommend to rheologists, particularly to those teaching the subject. The photographic work is of an extremely high standard, and the accompanying explanation and notes are written in a clear and concise manner.
