"Gallavotti's remarkable new book, Foundations of Fluid Dynamics, takes a fresh look at the essential formulation and phenomenology of fluid dynamics as reflected in the research of the 70s, 80s and 90s. [...] Foundations of Fluid Dynamics is strongly recommended, by this reviewer, for acquisition by academic libraries and for the use of anyone with a serious interest in the mathematical foundations of fluid dynamics." (J.H. Lienhard, Applied Mechanics Review, 55/4, 2002)
"This is an advanced textbook suitable for higher level graduate coursework and as a research reference work. [...] All in all, this book presents a broad range of topics in sufficient depth to make it relatively self-contained." (Mathematical Reviews 2003e)
