Softcover, third printing, 334gms, 137 pages. This book offers an introduction to the mechanics of flight and, beyond that, to the scientific attitude that finds wonder in simple calculations, forging connections between the energy efficiency of a peanut butter sandwich and that of the kerosene that fuels a jumbo jet.
