1One Star
By Jacob Jordan
The spine of the book was ripped and pages were falling out when I received it in the mail.

4It seems to suit the purpose for our hydraulics class
By Tim
Our class is only required to read parts of Chapters 4 and 5, about open and closed conduit flows (the rest is from the professor's notes). From what I've read so far, the reading is quite straightforward and easy to comprehend. There are so many fluid mechanics text books out there to choose from, and this one looks like a good choice, in my opinion.

3Time to upgade this book.
By David C. Kirkham
The book is informative, but lacks essential elements in examples that are required in the chapter problems. More to the point: The examples in the chapters are way too simple compared to the problems at the end. This book definitely needs some updating to keep up with Wiley's standards. Not a keeper.
