`Turbulence in Fluids will serve as a graduate-text to follow up... ' Pageoph `The book that Professor Lesieur has written on turbulence is an irreplaceable subject. Lesieur's work mixes rigor and intuition. ... it is the spirit in which it is written that is striking. Moreover the book is attractively presented. At the present time is seems difficult to ignore this book which fits very well into the collection of classical works on the subject.' Prof. J. Mathieu, Laboratoire de Mécanique des Fluides et d'Acoustique `The book is attractively produced ... some beautiful photographs ... this is an interesting and attractive book. Everyone interested in the more theoretical aspects of turbulence will want to read it. ' D.C. Leslie in Journal of Fluid Mechanics, 194 ` .. a useful text for a first course in turbulence for physicists, or as a second course for engineering students who have already had a more phenomenological introduction to the subject. It is a useful reference for the specialist who may not keep at his fingertips some of the details of the analytical theories and stochastic models. ' AIAA Journal, 26:10
