'This book deserves a place in every university library, and it will surely be read with much interest, and some surprise, by many applied mathematicians.' - Alex D.D. Craik, University of St Andrews, *The London Mathematical Society Newsletter* 2006

'The book is a valuable contribution to its subject and is likely to provide new and perhaps useful insights to those studying fluid dynamics. It is well written and produced.' - D.H. Peregrine, *Mathematical Reviews*

'By presenting in detail the interactions between many mathematicians and engineers, and by emphasizing the different styles characteristic of scientists in different countries, Darrigol has provided a fascinating insight into the development of hydrodynamics.' - J. Stewart Turner, Australian National University, Canberra, August 2006, *Physics World* 2006

'A fascinating and well written book.' - *Meccanica* 2007
