From the reviews of the third edition:

“It is a complete yet concise overview and study of the field, its history and all aspects of modern wind turbine technology. Aimed more at scientists and engineers … Hau starts with a list of commonly-used symbols and ends with a detailed chapter on the various facets of turbine economics. … this is a truly comprehensive sourcebook of value to anyone involved in the research, development, manufacture and operation of on- or offshore wind turbines.” (Real Power, Issue 2, 2013)

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This wide-ranging book, the product of over a quarter century’s experience, will be of use to any physicist with an interest in wind power electricity generation … . Some of its sections could well act as a source for solution by physics undergraduates and for more extended project work in a number of areas … . It would seem an excellent work of reference … to university and college libraries." (Dr D.G.C Jones, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 48 (4), 2007)

"Erich Hau’s Wind Turbines attempts to provide a complete but brief overview and study of the field and its history. The book begins with a list of commonly used symbols, a delight for engineering scientists. … In conclusion, this book is well put together … . If one wants a summary introduction to wind turbine issues, this book would suffice." (Ramani Ramakrishnan, International Journal of Acoustics and Vibration, Vol. 12 (1), 2007)
