Book review

From birds and aeroplanes to golf balls and hydrofoils, Tom Syson gives a delightful tour of the physics of things that fly or glide. Physics concepts common to most topics, for example drag and lift, streamline and turbulent flow, are introduced in early chapters. Each flier is then treated in turn, with full explanations to satisfy the critical scientist alongside intuitive explanations of forces and energy for the non-specialist. Liz Bryant's charming line illustrations help teh reader to visualise the physics concepts. The book is browsable, and will be a pleasure to dip into and read in any order. Short historical asides illustrate the development of manned flight: the Wright brothers achievments, biplanes and monoplanes, autogyros and helicopters, propellers and jet engines, sub-sonic to supersonic flight. Suggestions for further reading are given to recommend more detailed explanations or 'classic' good reads. Physics of Flying Things will be an entertaining and informative read for physicists and engineers from any discipline, physics students and teachers, perhaps even hang gliders or other fliers with an interest in science.
