I think this book is the best introductory textbook on techniques of renormalization available. It will be a delight to read for anyone who is encountering the topic for the first time and is wishing to exploit the methods to pass an exam or in one's field * Contemporary Physics *
this volume does have a fresh aspect to it, perhaps because of the author's background in fluid dynamics and turbulence theory the book should at least find a place on most library reference shelves. * Journal of Physics A: Mathematics and General *
All in all, the author succeeds in what he sets out to do, and the somewhat unusual emphasis on fluid flow problems makes this an interesting read. * Theoretical Physics Book Reviews *
One can hope that this book will stimulate interest in bringing the theories of nonlinear dissipative systems up to the level of understanding of the familiar and largely solved problems of conservative statistical physics. * The Journal of Fluid Mechanics, 30/09/2004 *
Requiring only the basic physics and mathematics known to most scientists and engineers, the material should be accessible to readers other then theoretical physicists. * CERN Courier, 05/08/2004 *
