Review:

From the reviews:

"Vehicle Dynamics is primarily designed for academic coursework covering the dynamics of automobiles. ... can be used as a teaching tool, a manual for practitioners, a reference source, and a survey of the state of the art in vehicle dynamics. The book’s intended audience is seniors and beginning graduate students ... . This well-written and organized book is a useful addition to the literature and should be in academic libraries serving mechanical engineering programs. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." (A. M. Strauss, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (11), August, 2008)

“Vehicle Dynamics: Theory and Applications is intended to provide the material for two successive courses in the area of vehicle dynamics at the senior year undergraduate and first year graduate levels. ... This textbook provides excellent advanced topics spread throughout the 15 chapters, which are clearly identified by the author with a star in the table of contents. ... an excellent textbook, which provides a modern, comprehensive, and modeling-oriented analysis of the traditional vehicle dynamics topic.” (Corina Sandu, Journal of Guidance, Control, and Dynamics, Vol. 33 (1), January- February, 2010)
