Industry Reviews

A marvellous compendium. It is a tremendous book for dipping into and for finding yet another serendipitous piece of fascinating information. The content and the price of the book are right. Like clever clogs I tried to find some howlers to point up, but I couldn't. Royal Aeronautical Society Journal
