    Very accessible introduction to aerodynamics. Uses a first principles approach and clear concise derivations of formulae such that you can identify the root components of complex equations such as Navier Stokes and understand assumptions required to bring them down to more accessible forms. This is the gold standard for how engineering books should be written.

    This is a decent enough introduction, but grossly overpriced. I also think it didn't distinguish itself from the older texts as much as Anderson seems to think. For half the cost you could buy 3 texts all specializing in different aspects of compressible flow, including "modern" aspects: Liepmann & Roshko for the fundamentals, Zel'dovich & Raizer for hypersonic and reacting flow, and Ferziger & Peric for computational methods. But, of course it's quicker and easier to read one book than three. So This is a decent enough introduction, but grossly overpriced.

So, buy this if you absolutely need a quick introduction to all the main subjects of compressible flow without going too deep beyond the fundamentals. But, find used or international copy and save yourself $150.

    An excellent reference in warm, accessible language. In particular, I really enjoy the introductory sections to each chapter, providing overview and context for each chapter. A robust, technical text for students of compressible flow. Compressible flow charts, table and relations make the bulk of the appendices for easy access. I use this text for a Hypersonics and Rarefied Gas Dynamics course.

    Yes, this is my class's textbook. Rocket science is ridiculously nerdy. Yes, this is my class's textbook. Rocket science is ridiculously nerdy.
