  • "At present this book is the most comprehensive and up-to-date collection of knowledge on the subject." Jeffrey M.Falzarano (SNAME News)
    On Professor Kobylinski, "He has been involved in stability related research for many years and is completely knowledgeable in this specific aspect. He traces the development of stability rules from the very beginning to the present day. He clearly explains the physical background and assumptions used in developing these rules in order to understand their limitations and application." Jeffrey M.Falzarano (SNAME News)
