This is an impressive, enjoyable and unique book... The style is light and entertaining, without in any way trivializing the subject or appearing patronizing, and Blip, Ping, and Buzz achieves the rather special trick of being valuable both to the non-specialist and to the seasoned practitioner.(Hugh Griffiths Physics World)
This well written book... is highly recommended for just about everyone including, dare I say it, experts.(Richard J. Peppin International Journal of Acoustics and Vibration)
The writing style is clear and sometimes whimsical, making for easy reading... An excellent addition to the ever-popular genre of books about how things work.(Colin Keay Australian Physics)
Denny largely sheds the complexity of mathematical constructs, distilling their most salient features into a more qualitative understanding of radar and sonar systems.(Choice)
Indeed, Denny's writing is anything but dry and boring. He adeptly explains complex subject matter and does so with relatively simple language and minimal use of symbolic notation.(Paul A. Faure Bat Research News)
Denny's book gets a two thumbs up from me. It is a clear, beautifully written work on a topic of great interest—and one of great mystery. Best of all, it is not a 'popular science' trivialization of the subject. It is decidedly unusual in that while a bright high school math or science student can read the majority of the book with profit, even graduate engineers will learn from it as well. I certainly did.(Paul J. Nahin, author of Oliver Heaviside and The Science of Radio)
After earning a Ph.D. in theoretical physics from Edinburgh University, Mark Denny pursued research at Oxford University from 1981 to 1984, then moved into a career in industry. For nearly twenty years he developed radar and sonar systems for several multinational aerospace corporations. He is the author of Ingenium: Five Machines That Changed the World, also published by Johns Hopkins. Denny is now retired and lives on Vancouver Island.
