"One can only effervesce with praise upon perusing The Acoustic Bubble, by T.G. Leighton. Here is a volume that is both comprehensive and readable--that informs the expert and the novice....The reader is well served by the authors careful attention to detail, his extensive table of symbols (14 pages!), his excellent use of photographs and graphics, an extraordinarily comprehensive bibliography, and, most of all, by his lucid physical descriptions of phenomena not only having to do with bubbles but also with a variety of physical systems that are related to foundations of the sciences that one must understand if one is to apply them to the bubble problem....The Acoustic Bubble is not only interesting reading; it is an extraordinarily useful reference for those working in or planning to work in the field....Theres no trouble with this Bubble."
--JOURNAL OF THE ACOUSTIC SOCIETY OF AMERICA
"The strength of this book lies in its effortless and enjoyable coverage of a wide swathe of rather intimidating literature and its unified mathematical approach....undoubtedly a major contribution to the field by an accomplished teacher, scientist and enthusiast."
--PHYSICS IN MEDICINE AND BIOLOGY
"There is no doubt that this is the most comprehensive and accessible text on acoustic cavitation available....This is a required reference for scientists and, in particular, medical physicists interested in becoming acquainted with the mathematical description of bubble dynamics and the wealth of associated physical phenomena. It is user friendly, thorough in its treatment of the theory and encyclopedic in its coverage of the experimental literature. I have no doubts that it will become a standard text."
