From the Foreword: 'John Anderson's ebook represents a milestone in aviation literature. For the 1st time aviation fans - either experts and well known readers alike - own an authoritative historical past of aerodynamic idea. not just is that this research authoritative, it's also hugely readable and associated with the particular (and extra typical) tale of ways the aircraft advanced. The booklet touches on the entire significant theorists and their contributions and, most crucial, the ancient context within which they labored to maneuver the technological know-how of aerodynamics forward.' Von Hardesty, Smithsonian establishment From the studies: 'Something of the unforeseen caliber of this ebook should be inferred from its complete name A historical past of Aerodynamics and Its effect on Flying Machines. Pilots are inclined to consider that the technological know-how of aerodynamics begun empirically, someplace round the time of Lilienthal and the Wrights, and that aerodynamics and manned flight are approximately coeval. it's hence marvelous to return upon a photo of the Wright Flyer as overdue as web page 242 of the 478-page volume.' Peter Garrison, Flying 'This booklet effectively straddles the boundary that separates a textual content e-book from a background ebook. it really is of equivalent curiosity to either the aerodynamicist and the layman. The textual stability accomplished via the writer has led to a e-book that's relaxing and educational.' Earl See, American Aviation old Society Newsletter
