If a person with no prior knowledge of the general area of interacting fluid flow and electric and magnetic fields would like to quickly and easily learn the fundamental aspects of analytical modeling of these phenomena, this reviewer would suggest this short book as an excellent text. The book was written with an ease of understanding and expression that only authors with extensive experience in practical applications of the subject matter can offer. Since the entire field is simply too broad, the authors have prudently focused on the magneto- hydro-dynamics (MHD) only, that is, on the analytical modeling of incompressible fluid...
