This is an excellent introductory textbook for a first graduate course in fluid mechanics. The material is presented in a logical and cogent manner. The chapters on introduction to tensor algebra and on vorticity dynamics are particularly excellent. The book, through its easy language and right focus, provides a good physical insight into the wonderful, if sometimes arcane, world of fluid flows. This book would be a nice pre-requisite to studying other classical and more advanced textbooks like the one by Prof. Batchelor.
