'This is one of the leading textbooks for naval architect students, and it remains a fine reference book....The subject matter is presented clearly with a great deal of information contained in the two volumes... Basic Ship Theory remains a primary textbook, designed to provide the student with an understanding of the fundamental principles of shiop design. A particular strength is the large number (more than 500) of worked examples, with answers included in the text.'
The Naval Architect, Feb. 2002
'will be of great assistance to practising marine engineers and naval architects'
Maritime Journal, December 2001
