From the Inside Flap:

“Sometimes in life you meet a person and for unknown reasons you feel an immediate connection ... That happened to me when I first met Bill Milliken almost 50 years ago ... “ “... wonderfully entertaining book ... will enlighten generations of young inventors and trailblazers to come.” Dan Gurney, from his Foreword “... as riveting as it informative ... someone who was willing to challenge convention and make some needed changes.” SCCA SportsCar magazine

Review:

"... as riveting as it informative ... someone who was willing to challenge convention and make some needed changes." -- SCCA Sports Car Magazine, September 2006

A wonderfully entertaining book . . . he recounts challenges and joys in the air and on the ground. -- General Aviation News

Book of the month . . . A must for all car and aircraft enthusiasts. -- Classic & Sports Car

Equations of Motion is both a revealing personal memoir and a repository of insightful and expert musings on the essence and findings of research into the dynamics of ground and air vehicles. -- Winding Road
