Very good introductory textbook

This is by far the best textbook I had on any subject of my aerospace eng. undergrad degree. Presentation of concepts is concise and examples are clear and easy to follow. The text is enriched by the inclusion of design boxes which explain a few key areas in the design of various interesting aircraft. If you don't like your textbook for whatever reason, don't hesitate to get this one and it'll certainly help you understand this subject well.

Excellent Aerospace Engineering Reference

This excellent book is full of examples and equations to help students relate to the fundamental concepts in an introductory aerodynamics class. The book is especially useful for reference, as it explains the derivations and many forms of complex equations such as the continuity equation. Furthermore, there are lots of examples of real-world design situations and historical backgrounds.Overall, one of the best books I have used in my undergraduate aerospace engineering curriculum.

Excellent book!

Great book for first and second semester aerodynamics. Especially the sections on supersonics and hypersonics. Links the technical and historical aspects of aerodynamics to give a very good global perspective of the subject. Anderson also provides "roadmaps" which tend to help the reader stay on track as to where the discussion is going. Those are especially helpful for technical books such as this one.

Fundamentals of Aerodynamics

This book is one of the best written books I have. This book is well-organized, clearly written and easily understood. Each chapter contains a road map to keep the reader well aware of the proper flow of ideas and concepts.

Looking for "Basical Publications" in Aero: Found one

This book covers all the aerodynamics a basic research engineer in aerodynamics would like to know. From non viscous to viscous and from subsonic to hypersonics. boundary layer and schockwave theories all included. Every part starts clearly with a nice outline the book will follow to come to the desired theorie. We use it for our doctorate program at Delft Aerospace, Delft University of Technology.
