I chose this rate for the quality of the product, it is just like a new book and the waiting time for receiving it was reasonable.

A comprehensive and understandable work on hydraulics... Sept. 25 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As a lecturer and graduate student in water resource engineering, I have read numberous textbooks covering the topic of fluid mechanics. I have reviewed textbooks written by aeronautical and mechanical engineers, and find that the civil engineers, particularly Dr.'s Finnemore and Franzini, have done an exemplary job in writing a book that is clear and logical, yet spares no detail, in presenting the fundamentals of fluids to undergraduates and graduates alike. The book begins with definitions, viscocity, and hydrostatics, then moves along to open-channel hydraulics and waterhammer.
The authors discuss the details in terms of concepts, testing, and mathematical computations while using a minimum of complicated vector integrals. They continue to present "the big picture" of hydraulics even while explaining fluid theory - a student and lecturer could not ask for more. Therefore, it is with great pleasure that I laud this textbook and recommend it to any practicing civil or agricultural engineer, or to any student of engineering.

Best hydraulic reference I have found & I use it regularly Aug. 15 2008
By MomRuns & PE(CE)/PLS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I own the 8th edition and have used it regulary since graduation 12 years ago as a practicing civil engineer designing water treatment plants. I have looked at many other fluid mechanics books over the years and have not found any equal to this one. I need to get the 10th edition and see how it has changed with Daugherty no longer around. There are other books that are more in-depth with theoretical analysis, but this one has the best balance betweeen theory and practical application for typical civil engineering projects.

After 10 editions you would think they would get it right... Oct. 9 2013
By Alec - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is very poorly written. The examples often have no explanation of the mathematics used, sometimes the examples don't even show the units through the calculation! Not only that, but there are errors in the book that refer you to the wrong equation. Easily the worst textbook I've ever had the displeasure of reading.
Okay but not exceptional July 10 2015

I had the opportunity to take a elective course in Fluid Mechanics during my undergraduate days from this text. Most of the material covered is fairly basic with an emphasis on fluid statics of course (constant velocity flow). Having already a fairly decent background in vector calculus and PDEs I was disappointed to see apparent absence of higher level mathematics. I understand that many of the real problems in fluid dynamics/CFD are approximations of the underlying equations (Navier-Stokes, etc.). However I would like to have seen some of the simpler models of turbulent flow at the very least. The homework problems are very easy most of them I did at three o-clock in the morning after a long day.

This was perfect for my Hydraulics course this fall. The paperback version seemed to match my classmates' hardcover version exactly for the material we covered, and my book was significantly cheaper. Only two complaints: the pages are pretty thin, so you have to be careful when handling individual pages (the book itself is relatively sturdy, for general student wear-and-tear) and the book wasn't shipped very carefully, so a number of the pages were folded over when the book arrived.
