'The book strikes a good compromise in presentation between two possible extremes: a purely descriptive narrative on the one hand, and a highly mathematical treatment on the other hand. This reviewer believes that the book will soon become a standard reference on the subject. While the book is definitely mathematical, there are also many clear and straightforward explanations of the physics which should be acceptable to most engineering students. The typography of the book is of a high standard.' Journal of Fluid Mechanics
"excellent coverage of special topics that may not be included in traditional marine hydrodynamics textbooks. The book is an excellent technical resource for information about high-speed vessels, since as it provides a summary of relevant recent research and references. I highly recommend this book to naval architects and marine and coastal engineers. This book is a valuable desktop reference for planners, designers, and decision makers involved in various issues concerning high-speed vessels." Journal of Waterway, Port, Coastal, and Ocean Engineering
